Drab grayish-brown flycatcher found in forested areas and edges. It is usually seen on a high perch, watching for prey and sallying out to snatch insects. After these short flights, it often (but not always) returns to the same perch. Nondescript plumage with whitish wingbars; base of the bill is usually orange but hard to see. Note the loud song that rings through eastern woodlands: "PEE-a-weeeEEE." Looks nearly identical to Western Wood-Pewee.
