A tiny gray-backed New World songbird, with a long tail that is often cocked.
- Genus Polioptila, family Polioptilidae (or Sylviidae): several species.
- Titmice, chickadees, gnatcatchers, grackles, and swifts came and went.
- A rainbow of darts shoots through the limbs - a capeful of purple finch, three blue-gray gnatcatchers, a pair of cedar waxwings, and countless ruby-crowned kinglets.
- Hence, the quail and the gnatcatcher might both be relatively recent arrivals in the north.
