Polioptila melanura

Black-Tailed Gnatcatchers live in pairs all year. These birds are nonmigratory and found in arid desert areas year-round. They thrive among some of the thorniest scrub and brush found in southwestern USA and Mexico. These birds require undisturbed habitats and will abandon territories if human structures are introduced.
