Blue-gray Gnatcatcher

Why is the barn so noisy?

Because the cows have horns.

Interesting Fact: Occasionally, significant numbers of Blue-gray Gnatcatchers “overshoot” on their spring migrations and end up much further north than usual. They may be carried past their target by strong southwest winds in warm regions, and by strong northerly winds on the west side of high pressure systems. Most probably make their way back south before nesting.  ( https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Blue-gray_Gnatcatcher/lifehistory )


  1. Simply amazing photo !!! How did you catch him in flight with tail fanned out and wings draped in front ?? The pose reminds me of a model coming down the runway in their designer’s newest creation !! I also notice the leaf shape repeats the pattern of the feathers. The light gray markings appear to be shadows. Is that correct? Thanks for your amazing talent and for sharing it with us all. jan

  4. Having been a farmer, I would have to take a poll on the answer to that riddle.
