Smoke-colored pewee        Images © Mark A. Chappell

The antethisis of a brightly-colored tropical bird, the smoke-colored pewee is even more plain than its northern relatives, the wood-pewees.   They are common forest birds that tend to perch on open branches; this one was photographed in the Western Andes above Cali, Colombia.
