Lives, Habitats & Pictures of the Gnatcatchers


There are two species of gnatcatchers found in Cuba, the Cuban Gnatcatcher being the most common. This member of the gnatcatcher family is found throughout the Cuban island. The Blue-gray Gnatcatcher whose habitat covers a large area of North America, is the 2nd gnatcatcher.

The gnatcatchers behave in somewhat the same manner as warblers and can be seen flitting from leaf to leaf and hopping from branch to branch seeking insects. These small mostly gray birds are always quite active although the Blue-gray Gnatcatcher is less coloured.
