Book Paradise Palms Jamaica Tours on a trip and visit Rockland's Bird Sanctuary which is located in the little town of Anchovy about 3 miles outside Montego Bay. At the Rockland's Bird Sanctuary you will find the Red-billed Streamertail and the Jamaican Mango birds which are so tame that they will come straight to a handheld bottle of sugar water and some of them will even sit on your finger to feed from the bottles.
Research has shown that there are 4 species of hummingbird resident in Jamaica of which 3 of them can be found at Rockland's, however the 4th, which is the Black-billed Streamertail, is only found in the very eastern part of Jamaica. The Sanctuary provides seeds to put on your hand for the Black-faced Grassquit,Yellow-faced Grassquit and Orangequit. Around the feeders on the patio are Bananaquit and Greater Antillean Bullfinch.
At the Rockland's Bird Sanctuary there is an outdoor patio area, where you can sit and watch more birds such as Jamaican Oriole using the feeders. Common ground-Dove and Caribbean Dove can be found around the gardens, looking for the spilt seed provided in the sanctuary. There is a guided tour which allows visitors to walk through the woods where you will be able to see some other Jamaican and Caribbean species as well as some familiar North American warblers wintering in the Caribbean, such as Black-throated Blue Warbler, American Redstart and Northern Parula. The endemic and Caribbean species most likely to be seen are: Jamaican Woodpecker, White-chinned Thrush, Rufous-tailed Flycatcher, Jamaican Tody, Jamaican Euphonia, Jamaican Vireo, Jamaican Becard, Vervain Hummingbird, Loggerhead Kingbird and Sad Flycatcher.
