|Lesser Kiskadee (Philohydor
(aka Pitangus lictor)
The Lesser Kiskadee is found from Panama to central Brazil with a disjunct population in eastern Brazil. It is always near water perched close to the surface or the ground and is usually found in pairs.
It is very similar to the Great
Kiskadee Pitangus sulphuratus but is
noticeably smaller and more slender. It has a
proportionately longer and narrower bill and has rufous
edges to the wing.
Photos 2, 3 and 5 show the semi-concealed yellow coronal patch.
