A bird very similar to the Great Kiskadee. The bill and coloring on the nape differs.

And, of course, this is a bird you can really mistake for another. If you think I am wrong, please tell me so and why.

I love comments so please write something. I usually responds to everyone on their own blogs. But nowadays I often find it impossible to comment on many blogs or on Google+. Often the word verifications is unreadable. And after three times I give up. Other times the systems seems to think I am a spammer. Lots of bloggers loose comments that way. :( So, if you don´t see me comment on your blog that is the reason.
