California Gnatcatcher at Lake Hodges

I thought this photo of California Gnatcatcher earlier this spring turned out quite well. Males sport this black cap in breeding plumage. In winter there is just a tiny dark line over the eye.

On this day at least a dozen of this endangered species were calling as I hiked around the Bernardo Bay arm of Lake Hodges. This is the most reliable spot I've found for this sought-after bird.
