I'm not saying that's what it is, I said as far as I know you can't tell them apart by photos when both are in range. You can call it whichever you want I guess, I just don't know which one it is.
Ok, so Lesse Kiskadee it is
The description you just gave of the location fits Scott's description of the Lesser Kiskadee. And they are both present in Colombia, many studies are done on both.
Hi Ashley and Scott. The picture I took it was actually right above a pond and near a river, in a place where te weather is average 33 celsius. Ive read about both Great and Lesser and I actually found in wikipedia a specific mention of a study of a Great in Colombia. So it seems to be a Great. Thank you both!
I thought the very strong rufous color of the wings and tail in this image would point in favor of the great kiskadee. I also read that the lesser has usually perches low to the ground near water, and that the greater prefers higher perches.
This is either a Great Kiskadee or a Lesser Kiskadee, you cannot tell from a photo alone as the only differences in them are the call and about 2-5 cm in length.
