Blue-grey Gnatcatcher

Four days into the New Year and I had yet to take a single photo. Decided to change that and ran over to Mead Garden to see if anything was interesting there. I was hoping to get the Red-headed Woodpecker in my sights but it was not to be today. There were the usual suspects around but my favorite shot of the morning was a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher.

Blue-grey Gnatcatcher

A birding friend of mine calls them "Blue-gray Time Wasters" since they are so common and usually draw our attention thinking something less common is there but I find them quite charming little birds. They are also a challenge to photograph since they move so fast while feeding. I will take a shot like this anytime.

2014 photos are officially underway!
