We spotted this Great Kiskadee in a tree, and it then flew to its nest at a nearby tree, where I was able to take this shot.  I think our presence spooked it a little - I hung around for a while hoping to get a few more shots, hopefully with some food in its mouth for the young inside, but it didn't return, and we were soon heading out on one of our Boat tours.
