Blue Gay Gnatcatcher: A Small Bird with a Big Personality.
The Blue Gray Gnatcatcher is a small, colorful songbird that is found in the southwestern United States and Mexico. It is one of the few bird species that is known to be socially monogamous and to form long-term pair bonds. Blue Gray Gnatcatchers are also known for their elaborate courtship displays and their complex songs. They have a bright blue back and wings, with a white belly and throat. The male bird has a black mask around his eyes and a black crown. The female bird is similar in appearance, but she does not have the black mask or crown. Watch for these fast moving birds as they search for caterpillars and spiders in the local greenery.
