I was looking back through my vacation pictures and found this little bird and then remembered we never did ID this little bird. It was taken on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. So anyone know what it is?

Thanks

Nice shot. It does look like a bug eater from the shape of the beak. :)

This sure is a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, a non-breeding adult, and a very nice photo of it, too!

Thanks everyone.

Steve, I'm sure jealous of you since you get to be out there everyday. I love the Grand Canyon.

Well, I'm out here, but driving a bus. I haven't shot anything in 3 weeks, I think my gear is beginning to get dusty. I do get a couple of days off a week, but right now I'm getting ready to take off for 2 months and travel to shoot birds. As Arnold says " I'll be Back " that is in Feb. for another season of driving and shooting. You are always welcome to the canyon, especially in May for some good Condor shooting...steve
