[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Great Kiskadee is a large and strikingly colored flycatcher that inhabits much of Central and South America. It has a black crown with a yellow coronal patch and a broad white supercilium that extends from its forehead to its nape. The kiskadee's olive-brown wings are set off by cinnamon wing coverts and bright yellow underparts. Great Kiskadees reside in a variety of habitats from forest edges to grasslands to busy residential areas. These birds can often been seen hawking insects from an open perch or dropping to the ground feeding on insects and small reptiles. Great Kiskadees have increased in both range and abundance in recent times, due largely to the creation of open areas where closed forest previously existed.

Hello Raimundo,
I remember my first sighting of a Kiskadee, it was in my daughters back yard in Managua Nicaragua. I thought to myself "I just have to photograph this beautiful bird before I return to the states". I did managed to photograph one and it became a precious image to me.
You have done a splendid job of capturing this pretty specimen who seems to have posed just for this shot. Great job!!
