The blue-gray gnatcatcher (polioptila caerulea) can be found on the edge of moist decidulus forests, short woodlands and shrublands from southern Canada in the east, the United States, except for the plains states, Mexico and upper Central America. It is the only truly migratory gnatcatcher and the one with the most northerly range, breeding in the upper United States and lower eastern Canada during the summer and moving south for the winter.

 

This tiny blue-gray songbird has a white breast and belly and a long, black, white edged tail with an underside.that is mostly white. This slim songbird has long legs, a thin straight bill, and a white eyering. In the summer the males sport a black "V" on their foreheads. They measure from 3.9" to 4.3" in lenght with a wingspan of about 6.3."

Feeding mostly on insects and spiders, the blue-gray gnatcatcher likes to hunt in dense undergrowth. They tend to nest in more open areas like moist broadleafed forest edges and hunt in the denser parts of the undergrowth. They even steal food from spider webs and take some of the webbing for their nests.

 

They are aggressive defenders of their territory.
