Red-breasted Meadowlark

Leistes militaris
Conservation Status: Least Concern

The Red-breasted Meadowlark is a common resident of open areas on Trinidad. Due to their preference for open habitat, they are one of the few species that has actually benefited from human expansion, often occupying areas cleared for agriculture and cattle ranching. There have been records of sightings on Tobago, but none recent.
