Cuban Finch


Species group:
 Tanagers and Cardinals

Other name(s): Cuban Melodious Finch; Cuban Grassquit

Scientific name: Tiaris canorus

Appearance

Details: The Cuban Finch is an alert, active, and aggressive species recommended for the experts who can provide the abundance of space and caution needed for success with these interesting birds. The spirited adult male is a striking finchlike bird with a black face mask framed with triangular yellow ear patches. The illusion created by the yellow “wings” almost encircling the face has caused him to be compared to a pansy or a butterfly. However, the territorial fierceness, combined with the black and yellow head pattern, has caused still others to think of a bumblebee. The female's face is more of a chestnut or reddish-brown with less vivid ear patches.
