Yep. Blue-gray Gnatcatcher. They build really neat little nests like this one. Ive found 2 nests this spring and they were both covered with lichen just like this one.

seeing before and ended up getting it right...! :smile:

What do I win...? :confused:

BTW really nice catches, Sal...! :cool:

Sal,

Just be careful of how you post the shot of the nest, people may get upset over that and claimed that you are disturbing the wildlife. :rolleyes:

No signs and very aware of that. Not disturbing wildlife. This shot was from a distance. Thanks for the info. :biggrin:
