Blue-gray Gnatcatcher

I photographed this Blue-gray Gnatcatcher today in Mead Garden, Winter Park, Florida. He was in with a group of Carolina Wrens. I have heard many local Birders calling them “Blue-gray Time Wasters.” It was thrilling for me to see this bird as It is with all birds. I was fortunate to get a shot that was in focus, as they are continuously moving.

Whatbird: Blue-gray Gnatcatcher is a Small, flycatcher-like perching bird with blue-gray upperparts, white underparts, and prominent white eye-ring. Wings are dark. Black tail is long and white-edged. Female tends toward grayer tones.

Breeds from northern California, Colorado, southern Great Lakes region, southern Ontario, and New Hampshire southward. Spends winters from southern California to the Gulf coast and the Carolinas.
