Happy to be back bird watching in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica, hosting birders from Norway – another pin in the world map. As well as our tried and tested sites, with an almost certain chance of spotting the endemics, we have also sighted a lot of endemics on the farm – not forgetting our North American winter visitors. A few birds, while previously sighted, have become more abundant, spring to mind.
Sad and Rufus tailed Fly catcher, Jamaican Elaenia, Tody, White crowned pigeon, mating pair of Orioles and the most controversial – a male Black billed streamer tail. My birding guides assure me this is ‘impossible’, normally only found in Portland – aren’t we right next to Portland?
I am still awaiting the definitive list of birds sighted recently and will post an addendum.
