The great kiskadee is a large member of the flycatcher family that inhabits much of Central and South America. It has black and white stripes on its crown and on the sides of its head, with a white line above its eyes, which gives it the appearance of wearing a bandit’s mask. It also has a concealed yellow crest on the top of its head. Its throat is white and it has a striking yellow belly. The kiskadee's olive-brown back and wings are set off by cinnamon wing coverts and its bill and legs are black. The great kiskadee eats insects like beetles, grasshoppers, bees, wasps and moths. Despite the fact that it is a flycatcher, it also eats berries, seeds, mice, frogs and lizards and can be seen diving straight into water to catch fish.
