Cuban Pewee

Contopus caribaeus

Common in the Bahamas and Cuba, this rather drab flycatcher was first found in our area in 1995, when a single bird appeared in Florida. Looking somewhat like an Empidonax flycatcher with only a partial eye-ring, it might have been overlooked as a stray to Florida in the past.
