Cuban Bullfinch

Melopyrrha nigra (Linnaeus, 1758)

The Cuban Bullfinch (Melopyrrha nigra) is a songbird species of the monotypic genus Melopyrrha. Sometimes classified in the bunting and American sparrow family (Emberizidae), more recent studies have shown it to be part of the tanager family (Thraupidae). Therein, it belongs to the lineage of tholospizan "finches", which also includes the famous Darwin's finches. Source: Wikipedia
