These tiny little active desert birds have long expressive tails.

In a previous post: ID: Gnatcatchers of San Diego, I discussed identification of the 3 species of gnatcatchers found in San Diego County.

Here I present several views of a single Black-tailed Gnatcatcher at the Anza-Borrego Desert Visitor Center near Borrego Springs.
