I am thinking the Pewee has moved on as I have not seen it since January 3.
There have still been insects available as I saw some Bluebirds fly-catching on
Jan. 6 from the same bridge where I had been seeing the Pewee. At first sight I
thought it was the Pewee. There was also an Eastern Phoebe feeding from the
bridge. It is possible it will show up again as I saw it on Nov. 17 and did not
see it again until Dec. 28. From Dec. 28 I saw it almost every day through
January 3. If I see it again before time they would normally return in the
spring I will post.
This and all the other birds that have been reported in Tennessee way beyond
their normal date makes me wonder: have those birds not put on enough weight so
they have not migrated?, will they still migrate?, will their migration take a
different route?, will they survive?, are some adapting to our warmer winters
so they that we may see more and more of them out of season? I do think it may
be possible for the Pewee to survive somewhere in the southern US during winter
since the Eastern Phoebes all here all winter every year.
