Can be migrants or maybe wandering birds this early. They do breed locally across STX and I gather more commonly in the Hill Country.

All –

I had a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher in my Corpus Christi yard on Monday afternoon – my First of Season. The interesting thing about the sighting was the BGGN was getting HAMMERED by a female Black-chinned Hummingbird, which chased it through the trees and bushes a good 20 feet. Hmmm…maybe I need to look for a hummingbird nest there…

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?
