The Lesser Antillean Bullfinch (Loxigilla noctis) is a species of bird in the family Thraupidae. It is a widespread resident of the Lesser Antilles except for the Grenadines. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forest, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forest, and heavily degraded former forest. [Wikipedia]

The Lesser Antillean Bullfinch is sexually dimorphic, as opposed to the recently split Barbados Bullfinch (Loxigilla barbadensis), which is monomorphic on the female type plumage. The male plumage is all black, with a reddish throat and lores. The undertail coverts can vary between all black and all red. The underwings are white, but also variable.
