Western wood-pewee

I like trying to catch photos of birds I see. Then comes trying to identify the bird. It feels like a minor triumph when I think I’ve succeeded. But sometimes the fun part is just learning its name. “Western wood-pewee.” Or “pewee” to you.

Ok. If you want to get proper and formal it’s “Contopus sordidulus.” Where’s the fun in that?

  1. I love birds and wish that there were more of them around. Occasionally Grace from Perth DP posts photos of the exquisitely beautiful wild birds in her area. Although I love them, too, and am amazed at their freedom, I also appreciate these sweet little wild things, like this one, that you photograph.
