    Eastern Wood-Pewee Identification

    The Four Keys to ID

    • Size & Shape

      Eastern Wood-Pewees are medium-sized flycatchers with long wings and tails. Like other pewee species, they have short legs, upright posture, and a peaked crown that tends to give the head a triangular shape. Their long wings are an important clue to separate them from Empidonax flycatcher species.

      Relative Size

      A bit smaller than an Eastern Bluebird; larger than a chickadee.
