Today's Bird: Great Kiskadee

Today's Bird is the Great Kiskadee!  The Great Kiskadee is a Rio Grande Valley bird.  This is probably the only place in the country where you really get to see them.  They're a type of flycatcher, so they mostly eat bugs, but they've been known to eat fish as well; a friend of mine actually a story of a Kiskadee picking those big fancy goldfish out of the Koi Pond in her backyard.  Once you know what they look like, you'll see them EVERYWHERE With their little bandit masks and large size, they're pretty distinct.  The Kiskadee was the first bird I saw on my first birdwatching trip in the Valley back in 2007, but I took this picture at Estero Llano Grande State Park on May 12, 2012.
