The brown birds seen in Cuba are found in many different bird groups. The Zapata Wren is a native bird, along with the migrating Savannah Sparrow can be found in the forests.
Below is a list of brown coloured birds, some mostly brown coloured and others who are partially brown coloured. Some of these birds are common, while others are sought after, and again some may be migrating birds. It is interesting to note that most of the brown birds seen, the males and the female species of that bird type, are most times also brown. This is unlike other male species of different colours, who may be orange, red, blue, green or other, and the female is a bland brown or grey. The suspected reason for this is to protect the female birds and their babies, while they are sitting on their nest and rearing their young.
