Tropical Pewee

Contopus cinereus (von Spix, 1825)

The Tropical Pewee (Contopus cinereus) is a small passerine bird in the tyrant flycatcher family. It breeds from southern Mexico and Trinidad south to Bolivia and Argentina. The taxon punensis, found in south-western Ecuador and western Peru, is usually included as a subspecies of the Tropical Pewee, but it has been suggested it should be considered a separate species, the Tumbes Pewee, Contopus punensis.
