This video says about itself:
Zapata Wren – Ferminia cerverai
A bird singing. Zapata Peninsula, Cuba (Monotypic species).
Recorded 1 August 2004.
15 March 2017, at the Zapata peninsula; the day after 14 March, the day I had seen the Zapata wren; we went to a Zapata peninsula forest edge where many doves were present.
Including Zenaida doves.
And blue-headed quail doves. They live only in Cuba.
And grey-headed quail doves. Also only in Cuba.
There were also other birds: ovenbirds. And Greater Antillean grackles.
A bit further, along the road, was a red-shouldered blackbird. Another Cuban endemic species.
Then, we went to see the world’s smallest bird, the bee hummingbird, again.
Cuban emerald hummingbirds were present too.
A northern mockingbird sang from the top of an electricity pole.
We continued our journey to Havana.
So, stay tuned!

Love the blue-headed quail dove!
Indeed! They are rare. Fortunately, at that place there were still quite some.
