Greetings from Cincinnati

Sorry I can't be of much help in identifying these rare birds, but your camera captured some striking images of these birds at wing. Also, your entrance into Cuba is a marvel. Congratulations, and best of luck bird-questing.

Cuba Birds ID

The last one is almost certainly a Common Ground Dove. I have seen this bird in California, but it is common to Florida, so proabably Cuba as well.

Photos 1 and 2 are almost certainly Northern Mockingbird. Photo 7 is an American Redstart.

The gull photos are interesting, possibly Bonapare's Gull.

Photos one and two: Northern Mocking Bird
Photos Three and four: Looks like a White-tailed Kite
Photos Five and Six: too poor quality to understand what I’m looking at.
Photo Seven: American Redstart Male
Photo Eight: Hummingbird. Species would be easier if you could tell us what PART of Cuba you were in.
Photo Nine – 11: It’s a Laughing Gull. Its legs are clearly black – a Bonaparte Gull would have orange legs.
Photo 12: It’s a Double-crested Cormorant
Photo 13: How big was it?
Photo 14: Yellow Warbler
Photos 15-16: Common Ground Dove

Thanks Bubo for the good id's!
Photos 3-4 appear to be very small birds, small as a Kestrel. Would that work for you>
