Western Wood-pewee

The Western Wood-pewee (Scientific name - Contopus sordidulus) is a small flycatcher that can be found throughout western North America. This bird hunts for insects aerially similar to the way swallows do.  These birds are migrants and winter as far south as Columbia and Bolivia. They are a fairly drab bird, mostly grey with two pale white wing bars.  The photos were taken on the Matsqui Trail in Abbotsford, British Columbia in July 2015.
