The diet of the Chuck Will’s Widow is mainly night-flying insects, but it also occasionally eats small birds and bats.

Look for a Chuck Will’s Widow in open woodland areas, and in more brush and woodlands areas during the winter.

The Chuck Will’s Widow can be found in the Southeast United States during the summer, and only the Southernmost parts of Florida year-round. During the winter, it migrates south.
