Three of the four US gnatcatchers can be found in Arizona: the Black-capped, Black-tailed, and Blue-gray.

The Black-capped is rare to the United States, only found in the Santa Rita Mountains.

Black-capped Gnatcatcher
 The Black-tailed Gnatcatcher range is Southwest Texas, and the southern parts of New Mexico, Arizona, and California. This little gnatcatcher nests here at The Azure Gate and with some persistence can usually be found, often in pairs:

 The Blue-gray Gnatcatcher's range is more widespread, the only gnatcatcher found outside the Southwest. It too nests here at The Azure Gate, though a little less often seen than the Black-tailed:
