Resumen

Abstract.-We are reporting the first case of predation of a Cuban Treefrog (Osteopilus septentrionalis) on a confined caged bird, a Yellow-faced Grassquit, (Tiaris oilivaceus) in central Cuba. We comment about predation on aquarium fish too. Both cases of predation are not reported previously.
