Saw at the Birding trail. Tried for it previous evening, and dipped. It did not even call! Was easy this morning when it was calling and I sneaked upto it. Was not a shy bird, and it offered good looks, feeding actively.
Black cap, white tail. Saw two together- 1 was a male, other I did not get a proper look. Saw a male separately on the way back to the gate. Likely at least 3.
The complete white eye-ring made me think about Black-tailed Gnatcatcher, but white tail ruled it out.
Was a little confused until I read R Fray's fb post on Arizona Birding - male loose their eye-rings eventually, and field-guides (at least Sibley's) do not cover this fact.
