Description: We examined the complex of populations of the Loggerhead Kingbird (Tyrannus caudifasciatus), a West Indian endemic. We separate populations in Puerto Rico and Isla Vieques (T. taylori), and Hispaniola (T. gabbii) as distinct species. Subspecific distinction is assigned to populations in Cuba, Isla de Pinos, and Cuban satellites (T. caudifasciatus caudifasciatus); Cayman Islands (T. c. caymanensis); Jamaica (T. c. jamaicensis); and the Bahamas (T. c. bahamensis) on the basis of differences in plumage coloration and pattern, size, vocalizations, and distribution.
Keywords: Puerto Rico, West Indies, birds, Hispaniola, Jamaica, Bahamas, Cuba, Tyrannus,
