GRAY FLYCATCHER

While in an arid pinyon-juniper high desert area, I watched in amazement as this bird did exactly what all the bird field guides state: fly from a high perch, dropping low to the ground to grab prey. The prey of a  Gray Flycatcher is flying insects, they will also eat grasshoppers and beetles. They are common in the western United States in the summer and migrate south to Mexico in the winter.
