Blue-gray Gnatcatcher

Polioptila caerulea


deciduous wooded habitats from shrubland to mature forest, especially near water.


The reference site states it feeds on small insects and spiders. This one seemed to be going from spider web to web on different shrubs. Perhaps eating insects caught in the webs or the spiders themselves. You can see webs in almost all the pics, and in pics 3 and 4 you can see webs stuck to it's head and back.
