There are two types of Tropicbirds species seen in the seas surrounding Cuba, these are the White-tailed Tropicbird and the Red-billed Tropicbird. These two species are found in the southern regions of the Atantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean surrounding the North American Continent, and throughout the Carribean Islands.

Both species are pelagic seabirds, living on the oceans, away from land masses, except when nesting or raising their young. Tropicbirds are recognized by their rapid wing beats, their long streaming tail feather, long pointed wings and mostly white plumage.
