The great kiskadee is a large brightly colored tyrant flycatcher. They are found from the Rio Grande Valley in south Texas south to Argentina. They are omnivorous. They primarily eat insects which they usually catch in the air. They also eat berries, lizards, rodents and they are one of the few passerines that will eat minnows and small fish. They can be quite loud and boisterous, especially when chasing other birds out of their territory, often times birds that are larger then they are. They received their name from their call which sounds like kis-ka-dee.
