Grassquits

There are three types of grassquits found near the North American continent. These are the Yellow-faced Grassquit, Black-faced Grassquit and the Cuban Grassquit. All three of these species are found in the West Indies and have been reported seen as vagrant birds, who were probably blown onto the mainland by storms or strong winds.

Grassquits are ground feeding birds and are recognized as being in the same family group as sparrows. These large billed birds are seen along the edge of the forest or in fields where they feed on seeds of various plants.
