Family Tyrannous flycatchers (Tyrannidae)
Signs: The size of an adult bird is 15 cm.
In the previous classifications, beckards were referred to the coting family, now they are brought closer to tyrants. The Great Beckard extends farther north than all other members of this genus. Usually, pairs of these birds settle near open areas with sparse vegetation, where they can often be seen sitting on the tops of trees in anticipation of prey. They feed mainly on insects and spiders; a variety of fruits serve as an addition to the diet. Prey is usually caught on the fly. The nest is a massive spherical structure made of small twigs and other plant material. The nest is fixed in a hanging position at the ends of branches at a height of 6-20 m, usually above a clearing or clearing.
Spread: The area is from the southern regions of Texas and Arizona to Costa Rica. Habitat: woodlands, shrubs.
