The Great Kiskadee

Great Kiskadee
Finally, here he is, the bird you have all been waiting for...The Great Kiskadee!

He is a a member of the flycatcher family, and is considered a "tropical flycatcher" in that his range in the U. S. is pretty much limited to the southern tip of Texas.  He is described as stocky, short-billed, round-winged and large-headed with a heavy bill. The Great Kiskadee is slightly smaller than the American Robin.
