Award Shortlist   

Cristofué

By Potra  
My first picture of a bird! YAY!GrinGrin I took it in the gardens of the School of Humanities at Universidad Central de Venezuela.

This is the name we give it in Venezuela. It has many different names depending on the country it can be found. It translates "Christ was" and it is onomatopoeic of its call.

Great Kiskadee

Here a short (less than a minute) video of its call.
The video is pretty good and clear.

They are very common here, it is such a familiar call, it is everywhere!
