bird in paradise

Kiskadee:  In the flycatcher family, and practically omnivorous, eating prey as large as small rodents.  These birds are conspicuous and raucous.  Brought to Bermuda in 1957 to help with an over-population of small lizards (?).   Must have been a successful venture as I saw only a few of those pesky reptiles!
