Black Capped or California Gnatcatcher????


Recommended Posts

I believe this is a California, but my app is telling me it is nearly 100% confident this is a Black-capped. It was taken around 2016, I believe in April? somewhere in palm springs, the salton sea, or San Jacinto Mtns.  Sorry for the wide array, just going through old photos...

This looks like a Blue-gray to me. White belly (California have gray-brown bellies, and they're found west of the Coast Ranges), long bill (Black-tailed have shorter bills). Black-capped would be a major surprise anywhere in California, I believe, and you'd need a clean shot of the underside of the tail to support that ID.
