The Great Kiskadee is the largest of the
Tyrant Flycatchers, measuring up to 10 inches (26cm) from
head to tail. It is present from southern USA through
Central America to northern South America.
It looks similar to several other tyrant
flycatchers: it is larger than the Lesser Kiskadee and has
more rufous plumage in wings and tail than the Boat-billed
Flycatcher as well as a narrower bill.
The photos above were taken in Costa Rica by Alexandra
Makhnina who observed how the bird was not worried to be
close to people and was sitting on a tree hunting over rocks
