Friday's Feathers: Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher

Today's Friday's Feathers belong to the Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher:

Isn't he adorable? Another bug-eater who loves the mystery tree(? tall shrub?) in my backyard. What can I tell you about him? Well, um, he's blue-gray and he eats bugs. He's also very tiny and always moving - like the warblers. Therefore, hard to get an in-focus shot of. Grrrrrr!

BTW, it's official: Said tree/shrub is a bona fide mystery. No one knows what it is. Not even the experts down at Fairchild Tropical Garden. Great.

Don't you just hate it when a bird wont sit still for its portrait? It reminds me of our Silver-eye" - although, having given you that link, you will probably never forgive me for causing you to lose a morning on the internet - some of his shots are wonderful.
