Lives, Habitats & Pictures of the Tropicbirds


There are two types of tropicbird species seen in the seas surrounding Cuba and they are the White-tailed Tropicbird and the Red-billed Tropicbird. These two species are found in the southern regions of the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean, surrounding the North American continent and throughout the Caribbean islands.

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