This species is placed in the genus Xolmis by some authors and Heteroxolmis by others. The second part of the scientific name has recently been changed, from dominicana to dominicanus but this is not yet accepted by most world lists.
Open areas, fields and humid fields, dry lowland grassland, seasonally wet or flooded lowland grassland, arable land, and pastureland.
Other species, such as Saffron-cowled Blackbird likes to be around this species, seemingly because it is good at detecting approaching dangers such as raptors.
Mostly silent. Occasionally delivers soft calls.
