Black-tailed Gnatcatcher? at Mission Trails

Black-tailed Gnatcatcher? at Mission Trails
By {authorlink} – 9:31 pm

Today at Mission Trails I photographed a Gnatcatcher that appears to be a Black-tailed, based on the white markings on the underside of the tips of the tailfeathers. Looking at eBird, however, I don’t see any sightings of this species at that location, which makes me suspicious about my ID. I’d appreciate input. I’ve posted two photos on Flickr that show the tail. I have other views if that would be helpful.

Thank you,
Emily Routman
