Spotted: Blue-gray Gnatcatcher

While looking out the kitchen window one day about a week or two ago, I saw in the apple tree, amid of host of chattering sparrows, a smaller, silent bird moving restlessly from one perch to the next. All I noted before it flew away was a white eyering and white outer tail bars on neutral plumage (maybe dun, or grey). I thought maybe kinglet, or flycatcher. It was actually a blue-gray gnatcatcher — perhaps a juvenile, given my vague impression of brown.
