Hi guys

Last two from my Cuba trip.

The first I am lost on. The second I am wondering whether it is Tawny or Red-shouldered Blackbird. Whaddaya think?

Agreed, Andy. However, the only common thrush is Red-legged in Cuba, and i do not see any features that match RLTH at all.

1) Maybe Black-whiskered Vireo?
2) Tawny-shouldered

Tawny is noted.

Regarding the thrush/vireo:
We discussed in another thread the likelihood of encountering BWVI in Cuba in October, as I couldn't understand I hadn't seen a single one (eBird records from october are quite scarce as well). And I fear making the ID as BWVI would be in lack of better options rather than a positive ID.
