Blue-gray Gnatcatcher

Species Details

This tiny, long-tailed bluish-gray bird resembles a miniature mockingbird and prefers forests and scrubland. The nest is built on a low tree branch, a compact cup of spider web, and caterpillar silk covered with lichens or bark fragments. It may be moved by the birds several times before the most suitable spot is found. The song is a thin, wheezy series of notes.
