Great Kiskadee

Polly Peacock

West Chester, United States

Artist's Description


Great Kiskadees are a treat for bird watchers.They’re boisterous in both attitude and color: a black bandit’s mask, a yellow belly, and flashes of warm reddish-brown when they fly. Kiskadees sit out in the open and attract attention with incessant kis-ka-dee calls and sallying flights. Despite their small U.S. range, this is one of the most widespread flycatchers in the Western Hemisphere.*

This little guy just happened to be in the right place and at the right time during our visit to Costa Rica in 2010. This photograph was shot with a Canon 40D, equipped with an 300mm lens.
