Dainty Blue-gray Gnatcatcher

 Bruce M. was not back on dry land very long before he snagged a good bird. This very active little Blue-gray Gnatcatcher made friends with a number of birders yesterday.
 It seemed more inquisitive about the onlookers than skittish. It would work its way up through the branches and have a close looks.
 Who was watching who?
 Constant motion made this bird easy to spot among the leaves and limbs as it flitted among the numerous willow trees at Quidi Vidi Lake.
 It was such a cold and blustery day for this tiny little bird. Perhaps the movement kept it warm.
 It is interesting in three of my shot, I caught this little bird blinking. That is unusual and just may be a sign of a tired bird. Hope it found a warm spot for the night. Today will see a warm-up and hopefully, it will fill its belly.
Fine find, Bruce.
