I like to call it the cute little, fat bird with no neck.
This is about the real size of this bird.
A Blue-gray Gnatcatcher leaping off of a mahogany seed pod.
My wife, Janet, says this picture reminds her of the ski jumpers seen in the Winter Olympic Games.
I give this little bird a high ten for style.
It is a tiny bird with a long tail and a small thin bill. To scare up hiding insects it flicks its tail from side to side. Since it is in constant motion, it is hard to observe and take its picture. They measure 3.9 to 4.3 inches long and have a wingspan of 6.3 inches. In the summer they migrate to the northern states.

This is a very tiny bird, constantly on the move, constantly flicking its tall back and forth to scare up insects.
The immature Gnatcatchers looks like the female, but they have browner wings, as seen here.
