Length: 5 in. (13 cm )
Common in open pine-oak woodlands and dry coniferous forests, pairs often join mixed species foraging flocks of timice and nuthatches as they forage for small insects and spiders high in the trees. The cup nest of the Black-throated Gray Warbler is made of grass and plant fibers and lined with moss feathers and hair. It is placed high on a horizontal branch.

The four-digit banding code is BTYW.
