Parking lot birding take two

I couldn’t help but take another look around this am. Orioles of both species continued with Scarlet Tanagers and Summer Tanagers showing really well. There were more Rose-breasted Grosbeaks and the first big surprise was a Yellow-breasted Chat, actually two, which came right out into the open near the mulberries. A single male Common Yellowthroat in the hedges along a balcony was the only warbler and an eastern Wood-Pewee called from an open perch. Cedar Waxwings continued in large numbers and the Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers hung about. Quite interesting to see what else may show up. The few trees in the apartment complex do not look very impressive and the main action occurs around the mulberries, but one oak attracts most birds.
