*rare | found in a scrubby path south of the Big Sit feeders in the North Meadow. First detected by its short nasally call, almost like a compressed GRCA. From the back the bird looked dull green backed in our overcast lighting - more olive than brown. White spectacles similar to BHVI. Unrivaled bright yellow chest - from the throat back to the legs.
