I was out on the porch with the cats when we heard the unmistakable sound of a Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher. These tiny birds are technically year-round residents of Central Florida, but in the summertime, they tend to be scarce. I’ve been told that they go to the very tops of pine trees to make their nests and raise their young. It’s usually around the end of August before I start hearing them again. Although they are common, Blue-Gray Gnatcatchers are some of my favorite birds to photograph. They are difficult because they move so quickly, but they are so cute!
I didn’t get a picture this morning, so here’s a shot of a gnatcatcher from Circle B last year.
