Photography – Kiskadee Flycatcher, Bermuda

January 29, 2011 Leave a comment

The Kiskadee flycatcher is noisy, aggressive and, with its bright yellow colouring, clearly noticeable all over Bermuda.

200 Kiskadees were imported into Bermuda from Trinidad in 1957. They became the prolific and noisy ‘Mafioso’ of Bermuda, seen everywhere on trees, shrubs and telephone wires. They are a major threat to Bermuda’s beautiful bluebirds and other birds as well as to soft-skinned local fruit, crabs and fish. Beautiful to look at, nonetheless.
