June 6, 2020

Location: Grant-Valkaria Community Park

I am a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher,
Sadly, I have a defective left eye
I'm called a gnatcatcher because I eat bugs,
With bad vision, I probably will not survive.

Note: We noticed this bird has something wrong with his left eye. There wasn't anything we could do to help it.
