The Greater Antillean Grackle is distributed in the Greater Antilles and the Cayman Islands. It is found in a variety of habitats away from forest but seems even more abundant near swamps and in coastal vegetation.

It is entirely glossy black with a bright yellow eye. The tail is keel-shaped and looks like a vertical rudder in flight.
