That is not a keskidee, it is a little bananaquit, a keskidee is a much bigger bird (like the size of a black-bird), but the markings are similar.

How do you know that's not just a young keskidee?
Antonym Oct 25, 2008
Aunty Katie not synonymous with bananaquit. Two different birds. Let me do some searching.

this is so not a Keskidee. It is a bananaquit.

That picture is that of a SEMP better known as a bannaquit, the Keskidee is much larger with similar markings except the black is now brown and yellow breasted. So People get your info right before you post. Can you coffee an tea lovers support my website: www.fabiantea.organogold.com

It is inconceivable that someone could mistake a keskidee for a bananaquit. The keskidee is at least three times as large as a bananaquit.The keski has a large area of brown. In Trinidad, the sikier(sucrier?) does not have this brown. It has a very dark grey or black in this area. It's beak is also much smaller and curved downwards. The keski's beak is large and points straight forward.

Is the name 'Keskidee derived from the French expression 'Qu'est-ce-qu'il-dit' or in English, what is he said, so invented by the French Trini-creoles first half of 19th century ?
De Wilde Chris-Arthur Sep 04, 2013
What is the scientific Latin denomination for this kind of bird ? Please ?
