Great Kiskadee

Pitangus sulphuratus

It has bright yellow underparts and its heavy black bill and very short tail makes this bird conspicuous. Its plumage is brown above, wings and tail edged rufous. A beautiful bird. But it's quite a character. It is noisy, brash and irascible. It took me one week to make a good photo because it perched constantly on a high red fence. Just before I had to leave for the airport I went for the last time to the hotelgarden. And there it was. It came immediately to me and perched on the ground down at my feet. Finally! As if it came to say goodbye........
