Class:Aves Order:Passeriformes Family:Polioptilidae


Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Polioptila caerulea. Tiny bluish gray songbirds with black, longer tail feathers. They have a white ring around their eyes. They build nests similar to those of the hummingbird and catch insects midflight for supper. This Blue-gray Gnatcatcher was photographed in Shawnee, KS. Thanks to Ashli Ahrens for helping to identify it.
