Great Kiskadee

The great kiskadee is a large colorful flycatcher that is found from southern Texas down into Central and South America. Even though they are a flycatcher they are omnivores, catching insects in flight but also eating berries, seeds, mice, and even minnows and small fish. They live in wooded forest most often near the water. They get their name from their loud gregarious call . I photographed this bird in south Texas.

You're lucky to have them in Texas. I have see these beautiful birds in Mexico and Costa Rica and always love their chatter and brilliant color.
