Eastern Wood-Pewee Facts, Pictures, Information

This types is incredibly just like the american wood-pewee and is best determined by variety and express. Vagrants should be determined with excellent care and preferably documented with files of vocalizations, photos, or video. Monotypic. Length 6.3" (16 cm).

Identification Adult: plumage generally dark-colored gray olive above with unexciting white throat, dark breast; white or light yellow underparts. Bill has dark-colored higher mandible and unexciting orange cheaper mandible, usually with a limited dark-colored tip. Long wings extend one-third of the way down the longest tail. Very just like the american wood-pewee, but spring and beginning summer time people are usually more olive with less substantial chest band (often produce interested appearance) and a light smooth grey nape that differences slightly. The side cafes are often larger and more contrasty. Parents molt on the wintering grounds, and used summer time wildlife (and slip wildlife in Southern America) are essentially identical to the american wood-pewee in look. Juvenile: during slip divided from used people by fresh plumage, buff-gray side cafes, and darkish wash to the upperparts. Many have more substantial dark-colored colour to cheaper mandible and appear more like the american wood-pewee. On average, the side cafes stand out more than on the american wood-pewee, with the higher and cheaper side cafes the same color and size (unlike the american, which usually has a less noticeable higher side bar).

Similar Species Extremely just like the american wood-pewee and best divided by variety and express. Most often confused with the willow and the alder flycatchers. Please take be aware the willow’s and alder’s relatively short primary projection (barely reaching beyond base of tail), smaller size, bright­er side cafes, and tendency to wag its longest tail. wood-pewees also look from higher prominent perches, to which they repeatedly come back. Compare with the greater pewee, the olive-­sided flycatcher, and the lower phoebe.

Voice Call: a loud, dry chip plit and clear, whistled, rising pawee notes; often given together: plit pawee. Song: a clear, slow plaintive pee-a-wee; second take be aware is lower; often alternates with a downslurred pee-yuu.

Status and Submission Common. Breeding: variety of do environments. Migration: primarily circum-Gulf migrant. Most come back mid-April (southern Texas) to mid-May (Great Lakes); remain later than the american, regularly into beginning July. Winter: mostly northern Southern The u. s.. No valid United States winter weather records. Vagrant: casual in West to american Tx, american Ok, american Kansas, lower Colorado, southeastern Wy, american Nebraska, american Southern Dakota, american Southern Dakota, lower Mt, south-central Saskatchewan, New Mexico, lower Nevada, lower Arizona, southeastern Or, and California (9 recs., mostly slip singing birds).

Population Reproduction Bird Survey shows widespread diminishes, particularly in middle Southern The u. s., but types not classified as threatened, vulnerable, or of special concern. Causes for decline unknown.
