Bermuda has a love hate relationship with the Kisskadee. One of the largest birds here, they were brought in around late 1950s to control the lizard population. Annoyingly they took a preference to the native birds eggs. They also enjoy fruits, berries, insects and small fish fry from ponds and the seashore. With bright yellow belly’s, a red brown back, white head with a black cap and band through the eye they are as distinctive to look at, as to hear – they loudly call a sound much like they are saying ‘kis-ka-dee’. True characters in the garden.
