I was in Junction today and stopped briefly at the WTP there, where there were easily 30+ gnatcatchers along the road and fence row.  I had never seen anything like it, and contacted a local birder there asking about it.  He said he too had seen it like that before and guesses it to be a pre-migration event.  It was something to see!

As I was getting dressed to go out this morning, I saw a very small bird that 
was all gray with white outer-tail feathers.  To me it looked like a Blue Gray 
Gnatcatcher.  I know we have them here in the Hill Country all winter, is it to 
early for them to be here?
