Today's Bird: The Smoke Colored Pewee

Today's bird is a lovely but simple Peruvian bird: The Smoke-Colored Pewee.  The Smoke-Colored Pewee lives in mid-level forests.  It's a type of flycatcher so it eats spiders and insects.  This one's a bit more sizable than the ones you might be used to if you live on the East coast of the United States.  He's much than his American cousin (the Eastern Wood Pewee) but his behavior and overall appearance is fairly similar. 

I took this picture outside Aguas Calientes on June 19, 2012.
