Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher
In the East they can be seen in the foliage of tall trees and in the West can be seen in thickets or chaparral. Females are similar it the males but have less blue in their plumage and, like the juvenile male, lack the black line on the crown. The high thin speee speee speee notes, sounding like a baby bird, may attract attention before the tiny bird is seen.

Sings a low-pitched trilling zee-you, zee-you, heard infrequently. It’s call, which is given often, is a pwee or speee, inflected like a question.

bird, top 10

Just a housewife with a camera and a mission; to photograph the beauty of the world we live in. Armed with my trusty camera, I search for beautiful compositions and interesting shots. You never know what I’ll find from day to day but if it catches my eye I’ll capture it forever.

Thank you for stopping by and viewing my work.
