Great Kiskadee (Pitangus sulphuratus) Science Article 3
The Great Kiskadee (Pitangus sulphuratus) is one of the commonest and most conspicuous bird species in Paraguay (del Castillo & Clay 2004, Smith & Clay in press) and is well known for its robust and rowdy nature. During fieldwork at Estancia Laguna Blanca, Departamento de San Pedro, Paraguay in November 2005 I made intermittent observations of three Great Kiskadee nests and noted some remarkable aggressive behaviour by their occupants.
