- Icterus dominicensis
- Yellow on rump, vent and shoulders
Non-descript buffy-brownish and can be confusing compared to both adults and other oriole species.
Found on Hispaniola (Haiti and Dominican Republic)
Seems sensitive to nest predation by Shiny Cowbird.
This is a monotypic species.
It was formerly a part of Greater Antillean Oriole.
This species used to include a couple of Central American subspecies and at that time was called Black-cowled Oriole.
Often found near palms from sea level up to mid elevation.
Palms are used both for nesting and for foraging. Food includes fruit, nectar, insects, and flowers.
Song activity just after dawn but is not common.
