The Rocklands Bird Sanctuary, located just outside Montego Bay, was owned and run for many years by Lisa Salmon, and continues to be run as a sanctuary following her death. Her nephew Fitz is now in charge, and has been associated with the site for 15 years.
Hand-feed hummingbirds and marvel at the variety of bird life at the Rocklands Bird Sanctuary on a 2-hour tour from Montego Bay.
The sanctuary is home to thousands of birds from Jamaica and migrant birds who have flown thousands of miles to feed here. The Red-billed Streamertail and Jamaica Mango are so tame that they will come straight to a handheld bottle of sugar water and some will even sit on your finger to feed.
Jamaica has 4 resident species of hummingbird, 3 of which can be found at the Rocklands Bird Sanctuary, but the fourth, the Black-billed Streamertail, is found only on the very eastern part of the island.
Put some seed on your hand to attract the Black-faced Grassquit, Yellow-faced Grassquit, and Orangequit. See the Bananaquit and Greater Antillean Bullfinch hopping around the feeders.
