This Eastern woo-pewee Flycatcher is a newcomer to our yard.  During the autumn they migrate to Central and South America to avoid the cold weather.  My best guess is that it stopped here on its way south which tells me I should follow suit in the near future.

They produce a whistling sound like pee-a-wee which I suppose it how it got its name. 


It is an omnivore as it likes plants as well as flies, butterflies, bees, wasps, grasshoppers and crickets.  They catch their prey in the air.
