Blue-grey Gnatcatcher?

Recommended Posts

We think this is a Blue-grey Gnatcatcher.  This Chickadee sized bird visited us in the canopy next to our third floor balcony.  It was constantly in motion, jumping from branch to branch and hovering briefly next to a fern.  We heard no call, but when my girlfriend played the call of a Blue-grey Gnatcatcher on her phone, this one showed up and posed for me.  This photo was taken on June 6, 2020 in Roswell, GA, a suburb north of Atlanta.  

This is a new bird for me, so I would very much appreciate a confirmation or correction.

Nice photo.  They are hard to photograph

Thanks, hbvol50.  2000 shutter speed helped, but it was not flitting about as much as the first time we saw it.  I wonder if it was looking for the source of the call it heard from my girlfriend's phone.
