This "finch" that is strictly found in Cuba, is no finch at all. The Cuban Bullfinch is actually part of the Tanager family which is very wide spread in location, habitat and appearance. Tanagers are one of the most diverse birds in the world, making up around 10% of the song bird population, but only found in the Americas. This particular bird is related to Darwin's famous "finches" of the Galapagos Islands. This particularly handsome bird was found in Zapata Swamp when we were on a guided trip with Adrian Cobas of Casa Ana.
