    Blue-gray Gnatcatcher-Polioptila caerulea
    Blue-gray Gnatcatcher-Polioptila caerulea, Family Sylviidae. Looks like a minature mockingbird. Today was a wonderful birding day--mild temps, clear skies and excellent lighting. These birds are very "flitty." I came across this nest neat the bird observation shelter. NOTE the spider silk used to fortify the nest! The nest was being constructed out of spider webs, lichens and other materials. This bird was spotted on a beautiful, sunny late-April day in the Shaker Trace Wetlands in the Miami Whitewater Forest area in SW Ohio. CLICK HERE to view a QUICKTIME Movie of their nest building.

    I also put together a
    QUICKTIME SLIDESHOW of these beautiful birds building their nest!
