Green-throated Carib Eulampis holosericeus

Demography and Populations

Individuals apparently disperse after breeding to higher elevations (Lack 1973), but population and demographic information is otherwise limited (Raffaele et al. 1998).  Wiley (1988) indicates that this species is parasitized by Shiny Cowbird.  This species has also been reported at sea between Lesser Antillean islands, namely between Monserrat and Antigua and among the Grenadines (Clark 1905, Lack 1973).
