Cuban Grassquit

Cuban GrassquitOne of several new life species encountered on a recent trip to the Carribean.  This bird is a male Cuban Grassquit (Tiarus canorus) and was photographed in the capital city of Nassau on the island of New Providence, Bahamas.  The Cuban Grassquit is a native to Cuba, and is a non-native introduced bird to the Bahamas.  These birds have also been found in Florida.  Perhaps a result of cage releases or even wind blown from nearby Cuba.  This particular bird was photographed near the top of the Queen’s staircase in a tree next to the parking lot.
