The Red-billed Streamertail, a hummingbird, is Jamaica’s the national bird, so it has to be a fun place to visit!
Add 27 more endemic species and a load of Caribbean specilties and Jamaica becomes a destination no birder should miss!
Jamaica is the 3rd largest of all the Caribbean Islands, yet, it is still reasonably small by UK standards, from East to West….146 miles and from North to South at its widest point is 51 miles.
On this trip we are concentrating on the Eastern side of the Island, this is lush green mountainous country with many habitats and offering opportunity to see all the endemics at an easy going pace with leisurely birding. We intend to bird locally and to travel to other areas, no more than 2 hours drive away to catch up with specific species which are more localized.
Focus of the Trip
28 endemics plus a few endemic subspecies other Caribbean specialties. Overwintering neo-tropical warblers, some waders, a few seabirds and shorebirds will also be seen. A small number of butterflies and reptiles can be seen.
