Abstract Storks were previously known in Cuba only from the living Wood Stork (Mycteria americana) and two bones of the extinct species Ciconia maltha from Cienfuegos Province. Newly explored Quaternary tar seep deposits in Matanzas Province have yielded fossils of M. americana, the extinct wood stork M. wetmorei, and an unidentified species of Ciconia smaller than C. maltha. These specimens provide the first verifiable fossil record of M. americana anywhere, the first of M. wetmorei outside of…

Only a single species of stork, the Black-necked Stork Ephippiorhynchus (= Xenorhyn chus) asiaticus, occurs in Australia today, and is known from several fossil localities from the Early Pliocene, which constitutes the earliest record of the Ciconiidae from Australia.

AN ANNOTATED LIST OF LATE QUATERNARY EXTINCT BIRDS OF CUBA

Abstract · Within the Antilles, Cuba has a peculiarly diverse fossil avifauna. However, information on this avifauna is scattered among the specialized literature. Here I provide an updated annotated

The Identity of the Fossil Raptor of the Genus Amplibuteo ( Aves : Accipitridae ) from the Quaternary of Cuba

The first record of this species in the West Indies is identified as Amplibuteo woodwardi (L. Miller), previously known from North America (California and Florida), which is the fourth large, extinct, buteonine hawk known at the specific level in the Antillean Subregion.
