Abstract: Western Stripe-headed Tanager (Spindalis zena) is a common bird in forest and shrubland in Cuba, Bahamas, Cayman Islands, and Cozumel. Mexico (Raffaele et al. 1998). After Hurricane Isidore crossed western Cuba in September 2002, we began to see small flocks of the tanager in parts of Ciudad de La Habana where they formerly did not occur.
