The Great Kiskadee

By: Jerry Poindexter

The great kiskadee (Pitangus sulphuratus) is a stocky bird that measures between 9 to 11 inches in length. It has a large head, short tail, and a stout, straight bill. A flycatcher that is frequently seen in the southern part of United States, the great kiskadee eats mainly insects, but will also feed on small rodents and dive into the water to catch small fish.

The reference for the pattern and painting notes are from study skins provided by the School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University in Tempe.
