We saw these birds several times in Hotels Garden, they call to each other frequently so are easy to pick up, plus they look weird when in flight, very distinctive shape.

About four birds seen most days, though could be hard to see at times as they liked to go under the mangroves along lake edge.
A few more shots of the Vultures around Hotel in Cuba
Common all around the hotel grounds and the roads and paths in the area.
Endemic to Cuba, very common around our Hotel, we had a tree stump outside room which we would put bread and cake on and upto a dozen Blackbirds would come.
Seen everyday on the lake but very small numbers.
