"Cuban Bullfinch," The Cornell Lab of Ornithology. The breeding displays of the Cuban Bullfinch have been little studied in the wild. According to Todd (1916) and Barbour (1945), the species is easier to detect during this stage of its life cycle. The threat display of the female is different. Head forward, wings close to body and tail down and pointing forward too, producing an annoying and repeated sound; can also raise the wings to show the underwing patch, but in a smaller angle.
