The Antillean siskin (Spinus dominicensis) is a species of finch in the family Fringillidae, and the only species of the genus Spinus found in the Caribbean.
Distribution and habitat

It is endemic to Hispaniola (in both Haiti and the Dominican Republic). Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist montane forests and heavily degraded former forest.

This seems to be the most ancient extant species of the North American Spinus evolutive radiation, being the first to diverge from the lineage which eventually gave rise to the pine, Eurasian, and black-capped siskins.[2][3][4]
