Hadnt planned to go here initially but decided to stop here on route to negril so the family could experince feeding the hummingbirds..
we went here last march and there were lots of hummingbirds and other varieites..
this time there were only a few which is a shame as they did not expereince waht we had..It was a long time before one perched on my duaghters finger to drink from the sugared water feeding bottle..my mum in law never got one...there were couple birds who ate the seed off her lap though..
Reason for this was it is mating season and the birds are nesting. The guide said theyw ere lazy..Also i noted that it could have been the time of day as they are more active in the mornings.we had arrived there around midday..
On our last visit it was fab and we were inunadated with the hummingbirds, this time for me disappointment that the family never expereinced the same but at least a couple came..had to wait a long time for this.
Cost was $15 each do negotiatie though as he gave us a discount as we have been before and have recomnended people go there..
we didnt get time to look around the grounds this time as we had to continue on our journey..
the grounds are beautiful and the guide will tell you lots about the house and history surrounding it.
Rocklands bird sanctuary is situated in anchovy just outside of montego bay.It is up a narrow road, which is steep in parts. To get here you would have to go with a private driver as coaches would not make it up the road..
I will post some photos soon.
worth a visit if you like birds..
