Wild Bird Wednesday

Yesterday I went for a short drive and took some pictures. The bird pictured above was one so tiny I had to include it in my Wild Bird Wednesday. It was so tiny and my zoom lens was maxed out that I still couldn't get a good identification shot but thought it clear enough to still share... Happy Birding~

If you'd like to hear this bird's song you can take a listen to the video I posted in my sidebar. Anyone knowing what it is please feel free to let me know in the comments.

Update: Thank you to Chris Rohrer and TexWisGirl for giving me some suggestions on what this bird is. Looking both suggestions up I found it was the blue-gray gnatcatcher. It's a new bird for me.

Hoorah - I've managed to become a follower at last! Don't know what the problem was before.

No idea what the bird is but so pleased you'll be on my blog roll now.

Looks like a vireo of some kind....hmmmm.....

Yes, I know what it is ************ ooops, it seems not to let me do it. I know it's common bird.

maybe a gnatcatcher? they are tinier than a chickadee.

Don't know what he is but it is an adorable photo -- reminds me of those hidden picture puzzles.

I do not know, TexWisGirl is very knowledgeable :-) Whatever it is, it seems to be enjoying the day.

It is a beautiful image!! Even though it is distant, it is crisp and clear and looks so pretty with all the leaves!!

I don't think I have ever seen a gnatcatcher, it looks like a cute bird!!

I love the filigree of branches, and the sighting of the bird, pretty shot.

That tiny bird really did not want his photograph taken, now did he? Lovely shot.

When I blew it up I thought it was a blue jay at first, but then it's small so that can't be it. Your shot is so clear though. You have such a steady hand.

Nice.
