Barbados Bullfinch in Barbados
Barbados Bullfinch in Barbados

The Barbados bullfinch (Loxigilla barbadensis) is a seedeater bird that is found only on the Caribbean island-nation of Barbados, where it is the only endemic bird species. [Wikipedia]

The Barbados Bullfinch has only recently been separated as a species different from the Lesser Antillean Bullfinch (Loxigilla noctis). Unlike its congeners, the Barbados Bullfinch lacks a black and rufous male plumage; instead the males are dull and pale brownish like the females. This monomorphic plumage is one of the prime reasons species status was given to this form. On Barbados it is widespread and can be found in practically any area that either has trees, or tall shrubbery, including hotel grounds, urban areas and agricultural sites. It is not uncommon to see this endemic species foraging on beaches, and picking up crumbs and other edible bits left by vacationers on this tropical island. [Neotropical Birds]
