Jamaica

Jamaica is beautiful and fascinating… …and hosts a delightful mix of endemic birds like Red-billed Streamertail… …and Antillean species including the usually under cover Loggerhead Kingbird. We’ll visit all of Jamaica’s important habitats from the mountains…  …to the coast… …and thanks to our superb leader Rich Hoyer… …we’ll see all the endemic birds (we hope) including handsome Jamaican Orioles… …endearing Jamaican Todies… …pink-toed Blue Mountain Vireos… …the microscopic Vervain Hummingbrd… …some of the endemics are very shy… …and there are privacy issues. We stay in comfortable places (that’s our bus)…  …some elegant… …including Marshall’s Pen, a Jamaican “Great House” and home to our host Ann Haynes-Sutton…. …who serves delicious plates of food… …outdoors… …surrounded by Orangequits (the bird, not the fruit). We’ll look at everything even the (gasp…) Jamaican Flasher …endemic False Androgeus Swallowtails… …handsome Jamaican Turquoise Anoles… …and some amazing orchids. Caffeine addicts can sample the celebrated Blue Mountain Coffee at a plantation…. …we’ll all soak up the “Islands” atmosphere… …and return home with memories.
