The Great Kiskadee is a skilled search of food; and to achieve this has varied techniques adapted to each type of prey or food that offers its habitat. Sometimes you catch while flying ondulantemente and other studies minutely the ground or water under the branch he is sitting . To hunt , the " benteveos " accustomed to " halconear " ( how to plan Hawks ) in the manner of certain birds of prey, then quickly darting over his victim with the body angle of 45 ° and flapping . For fish, the benteveo perches on a branch or ravine protruding above the water and expect a tadpole or small fish near the surface appears. Then fly to their prey and fluttering over the water without diving catches . The proximity of humans provides new possibilities to supply " Benteveo " follows the plow in spring to eat worms and larvae that are exposed by removing the earth and approaches the slaughterhouse in search of fresh meat snacks . Sometimes stalking other birds ; to steal their food they have achieved ( like pirates ) and can eventually rob nests to eat their eggs and chicks.

Bonjour Hernan,
An interesting note going with this colorful bird-picture. Typical for you to take the shots from underneath, showing here the striking yellow color of the belly :-).
Fine sharpess, good horizontal composition. Interesting!
