Endemic to Hispaniola and Puerto Rico and their satellite islands, the Antillean Mango is a relatively large-sized hummingbird with a comparatively long and slightly decurved bill. Males are largely black below with an iridescent green throat and dark purple-coloured tail, whilst females are principally white over the underparts and also have whitish tips to the tail. It is a common and widespread resident, although the species has apparently been extirpated on three of the Virgin Islands. Antillean Mango is found in most forested habitats, although it largely shuns pine forest, and is recorded from sea level to 2600 m. Breeding probably occurs year-round.
