One of the frustrations of photographing birds is they don't always appear in the best light. Hmmmm. Yesterday, this one (and its mate which you cannot see in this photo) was on the west side of the path in late afternoon. I moved to a better angle and they wouldn't come back. But when I returned to the path they continued building their nest.

Blue-gray gnatcatchers are rare to uncommon here so I decided to continue photographing them in spite of the light.
