While looking for Loggerhead Shrikes in the Kasota Prairie area in southwestern Le Sueur County this morning I found a calling/displaying Yellow-breasted Chat. This was at about 6:15am.
The bird was on Township Road 140/367th Avenue south of the Kasota Prairie SNA and about 0.5 miles north of Township Road 360/480th Street. The bird was on the west side of the road on the downslope and while that area is posted, the bird was readily seen and heard from the road.
