Similar species:

The Blue-gray Gnatcatcher is so small but long-tailed that it is only likely to be confused with other gnatcatchers. Black-tailed and California Gnatcatchers have blacker tails when viewed from below and brown in their wings. Black-capped Gnatchers (very local in United States) also have brown in their wings.
