Lives, Habitats & Pictures of the Pewees

Enter Bird's Name in Search Box:



There is only one native pewee in North America and that is the Greater Pewee. The Cuban Pewee is a possible vagrant. Other species in the same group who are similar in appearance are the wood-pewees who are all flycatchers.

Pewees prefer forests and are almost always found near creeks, streams or along the waters edge. These birds make use of spreading limbs as a place to perch, while waiting for an opportunity to catch passing insects
