Photographer's Note

Adult Great Kiskadees are 22 cm (8.7 in) long and weigh 63 g (2.2 oz). The head is black with a strong white eyestripe and a concealed yellow crown stripe. The upperparts are brown, and the wings and tail are brown with usually strong rufous fringes.

The black bill is short and thick. The similar Boat-billed Flycatcher (Megarynchus pitangua) has a massive black bill, an olive-brown back and very little rufous in the tail and wings. A few other tyrant flycatchers some not very closely related share a similar color pattern, but these species are markedly smaller.

The call is an exuberant BEE-tee-WEE, and gives the bird its name in different languages and countries: In Spanish-speaking countries it is often bien-te-veo ("I see you well!") or, sometimes, benteveo. In Brazilian Portuguese the bird's name is bem-te-vi, with a similar meaning. A local Mexican name is luis bienteveo, in El Salvador it is know as Cristofue, and in Paraguay as pitog. In French it is called tyran quiquivi.

Taken in Praa da Liberdade (Liberty Square), Belo Horizonte, in this same fountain.
