Blue Grey Gnatcatcher

What an amazing looking little bird to spend some time watching. He hopped around from branch to branch and getting a photo or two seemed in the end pure luck.

All about birds had this to say “A tiny, long-tailed bird of broadleaf forests and scrublands, the Blue-gray Gnatcatcher makes itself known by its soft but insistent calls and its constant motion” and it sure fit this guys behavior to a tee.

  1. Where I live in No. Calif. the blue-gray gnatcatcher spends the summer, and I always stop when I hear that scratchy high-pitched call, and look around. I’m glad for the insistent sound, because they are often difficult to spot, farther away than they sound, and almost impossible to photograph for all their twitchy ways. These photos, Mike, are the best I have ever seen them. wow. Thank you.

    Great catch! They really are on the move. The one we saw this weekend was calling and wouldn’t sit still. Getting a photo of one takes patience and lots of tries.

    1. Hi Jan and thanks. They are very fun albeit twitchy little birds and getting a chance to see them is always fun. Hope your day is going well and wishing you a fine weekend.
