Can anyone help me with the identification? My first guess was a blue-gray gnatcatcher but it also looks like the female black throated blue warbler in my old Audubon Field Guide. All three pictures are the same bird. My location is St. Louis.



Thanks,

Joe

Blue-gray gnatcatcher. The eyelet and long white edged tail are the give-away.

Thanks,

It looked so warbler-y that I out thought myself on the ID. Sibley's (which I usually rely upon for ID) shows a grayer belly. This one was definitely more bluethan gray above and very white below.

But I agree now, definitely a BLUE-gray gnatcatcher. :-)
