Eastern Wood Pewee


This little Eastern Wood Pewee was spotted sitting upright.  The bird perched on top of an utility conduit pipe at the side of the road here in the development.  I seldom see these cute tiny birds here. This is the second one I have spotted recently.  The Eastern Wood Pewee is a fly catching bird.

There is a cattle pasture located across the road from where I saw this bird, so it likely enjoyed a lot of flying insects.  I think that this is a migrating bird visiting here for the Winter.  I took these pictures at twilight on October 16, 2013.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  1. so cute! they are so similar to the phoebes, i wouldn’t be able to tell them apart.

  2. He’s a teeny tiny flycatcher, so cute! But with his size, maybe he should stick to chasing fleas!

  3. Pretty little bird! It’s new to me.

    • Hi Montucky, Yes, they are pretty much an Eastern/S.E. U.S.A. bird, Had many of them in TN where I previously lived (especially at the lake house). Have a super day tomorrow!

  4. Adorable bird!
