The family of Gnatcatchers occurs in America from southern Canada to Argentina. They are 10 cm to 13 cm long, slender long-tailed birds that are related to the wrens. Their diet is mainly insects. Both parents together build a bowl-shaped nest made of fine plant material, hair and cobwebs in trees up to 24 m above the ground. Both partners incubate a clutch of 3 to 5 eggs for 13 to 17 days.
