Old Hat, New Hat for the Gnats..an update


Posing for photos seems to be "old hat" for these two adult Gnatcatchers, they have "been there done that" before..it was


the two new Gnatcatchers who chose to make their debut, together, but.. very high in the top of the tree! It was great to see that all four birds were doing well..but getting a close up picture of the new babies will have to come another day!

Wish we could train ours to pose for us. Nice photographs.

Hi Tina,
I will already give everything to get the shots you got!! These are really cute attitude shots! Let's get the baby later on, both for your pleasure and ours ;-)
Have a nice week-end.

You did good, Tina. Our silly birds won't stop long enough to pose for the camera either. We need to train them, don't we???? ha

Hugs,
Betsy

Blue-gray Gnatcatchers are so adorable. Kind of like mini ping pong balls. Great shots!

Both the last to birds are relatively rare around here and hard to catch for a pic. One hippyety hopping in the thick bushes and the other high in the cotton woods. You did good Tina!

Bravo! It's hard enough to get one of those quick little ones, let alone 2 together!

Gnatcatchers. I like them and wish they would show up here in my lifetime.

You've made friends with this little pair of gnatcatchers - that is so cool! They are bold little things, aren't they? And the downy babies are adorable - the picture is great though it is high in the tree top!
