The Cuban oriole is a species of songbird in the family Icteridae. It is endemic to Cuba. Adults measure 20 cm long with a 10 cm wing length. They are black with yellow patches on the shoulders, underwings, rump and undertail. Sexes are alike. Juvenile birds are olive while immature birds are olive with a black face and throat. The taxon was formerly lumped with Bahama orioles, Hispaniolan orioles, and Puerto Rican orioles into a single species known as the Greater Antillean oriole until all four birds were elevated to full species status in 2010. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical mangrove forests, and plantations.
