Thanks for all that input.
I rarely use a recorder in the field (there is usually somebody with me who does) but I did infrequently in Cuba and I suddenly remembered that I recorded this bird.
It is in fact a call rather than a song so apologies for that bum steer.
You can find it at http://www.arthurgrosset.com/sabirds/sounds/tanager.mp3
I don't have a Scarlet Tanager recording to compare this with but it does sound similar to Doug Van Gausig's recording of Summer Tanager at http://www.naturesongs.com/paruicte.html#thra

Does everyone agree that this confirms the bird as a female Summer Tanager?
