Discover The birds Cuba

Amongst the 380 species of birds found on the archipelago, 21 have been labelled endangered. And among those are certain parrots, nightingales and woodpeckers. The tocororo, a Cuban parrot, is the national bird. Meanwhile the zunzuncito, the smallest bird in the world, is often mistaken for an insect. Deforestation is leading to the disappearance of certain species whilst endangering others. Many animal and plant species are on the UN's official list of species that are close to extinction.

    This sandpiper owes its name to its behaviour: it always runs very fast on the beach and is difficult to take a photo of.
