Western Wood-pewee perched on barbed wireWestern Wood-Pewee perched on barbed wire

I saw several Tyrant Flycatchers on my last trip to Montana, Eastern and Western Kingbirds and a couple of Western Wood-Pewees that were hawking from fence posts and barbed wire along a gravel road. I haven’t photographed many Western Wood-Pewees so I was interested in their aerial forays after the insects as I watched and photographed them through my viewfinder. These small birds flew off their perches rapidly to go after prey and were difficult to track in flight.

I hope to have more opportunities with Western Wood-Pewees soon.
