Blue-gray Gnatcatcher Chasing Breakfast

.

One of the recent mornings I looked for the Cape May Warbler at the Everglades NP Gulf Coast Visitor’s Center, another welcomed treat was a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher in one of the two Sweet Acacia trees.

The Blue-gray Gnatcatcher was hunting for insects on branches full of thorns.  Look at those intense focuses!

The bugs are fast, and so isn’t the Blue-gray Gnatcatcher!

Blue-gray Gnatcatcher sees that bug!  Do you see it?

I love the bonus of flowers and berries in images of birds!  🙂

  1. Such cute photos!! I love the little bird ❣❣ And on a side note, we have those exact trees in our back yard! But they are full of little finches surrounding our bird feeder 😊

    • Thank you, Lisa! Re the trees, I didn’t know what kind they were, it was an easy google search to find out. Those trees smell wonderful! Lucky you to have yours filled with finches!! 😊

  2. No, I definitely don’t see what the gnatcatcher is seeing, but I guess it would be a gnat! I like the flowers and berries, too, they make a lovely backdrop. Such a sweet little bird.

  3. What a wonderful setting for capturing this bird. I’m not sure I have ever seen one. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you, Susan! They breed widespread across the U.S., including the mid-Atlantic. I usually hear them before I can find them, they are so fast and do hide behind leaves. 🙂

    • 😊 Thank you, I enjoy sharing the shot and story to show you just never know what you might see when out, even on an errand run! lol I still learn on occasion by not taking my camera. but for the most part where I go it goes!
