A Museum Quality Print of the Yellow Breasted Chat by John James Audubon for his ornithology book, The Birds of America. This painting shows a pair of birds in the nest and two others flying above the nest, these two seem like they are floating in the air. All of these birds are in a sweet briar bush or wild rose bush, these birds were depicted as they act during their mating season.
Icteria Viridis - Audubon says of the yellow breasted chat "This singular bird is extremely plentiful in Louisiana, Georgia, and the Carolinas, during spring and summer. It arrives in the first of those States as soon as the blossoms of the dog-wood mark the return of the vernal season. Many continue their migrations eastward as far as Connecticut, but beyond this the species is seldom if ever seen. I have found it equally abundant in Kentucky, particularly in the barrens of that State; and it ascends the Ohio, spreading over the country, and extending as far as the borders of Lake Erie in Pennsylvania. It never enters what is properly called the woods, preferring at all periods of its short stay with us, the large tangled and almost impenetrable patches of briars, sumach, prickly ash, and different species of smilax, wherever a rivulet or a pool may be found. The food of the Yellow-breasted Chat consists of coleopterous insects and small fruits. They are especially fond of the wild strawberries so abundant in the Kentucky barrens."
