The Great Kiskadee is one of the birds whose name resembles its call. The loud and piercing kis-ka-dee call is often heard before the bird is seen. It’s a large flycatcher, almost 10 inches long. As you might expect, insects make up a big portion of its diet. However, it isn’t shy about going after a lizard or diving into a pond to catch small fish. The only place to see this bird in the United States is southern Texas, especially in the Rio Grande Valley.
