I spotted this Chachalaca sitting on the nest at Frontera Audubon yesterday. While big and loud, they aren't really unattractive. SeEtta

I was able to get several good pics of an Overbird at Frontera Audubon.
While we are used to warblers flitting from branch to branch in trees, this member of the warbler species is a ground forager. SeEtta
