Tropical Pewee or Tumbes Wood-Pewee

Contopus [cinereus, bogotensis or punensis] (= Contopus cinereus) (Spix, JB 1825)

The tropical pewee or southern tropical pewee 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.
