This morning I was very close to, but did not see, what sounds to me like a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher. It was on private property and I could not enter without trespassing to find the bird. The bird continued to move deeper into the private area and eventually went silent. However, I did make some recordings as it was calling it's "spee" calls for over a minute. These recording are in my eBird checklist attached. If you feel this is something other than a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, please let me know. The recordings are rather soft but the bird was rather loud and nasally. The spectrogram looks good for the species. Turn up your volume.
