The peewee is a member of the flycatcher family, often confused with the phoebe. It is hard to see and can be most easily distinguished by the sad way in which it says its name.
   The adult is from six to six and one-half inches long, dark olive-gray above with a grayish-white breast. The wings are marked with whitish bars. It prefers to live in dry woods, often nesting in orchards. When it is feeding, it perches in the tops of trees and dives for flying insects.
   The peewee breeds in eastern North America and winters in South America. The nest is broad and flat and beautifully made. It is covered so that it seems to grow out of a branch.
