The Great Kiskadee is a large flycatcher that is found mostly in Mexico and into South America. However, the northern edge of its range touches the United States in the southern tip of Texas. I photographed this individual from a blind in 2007. This is just one example of why photographing from the private blinds in south Texas is so much fun. You get great close-up shots of species you’re unlikely to encounter at home.
