The Rockland Bird Sanctuary is home to many species of birds, some endemic to Jamaica while others flew to the Island from other countries and make Jamaica their home. The bird sanctuary is located in the hills of a small community called Anchovy, approximately a 20-minute drive from the city of Montego Bay. The tour can last for 45 minutes to over 1 hour depending on the group's interest. Bird lovers will find this tour very fascinating as many different birds will fly from trees to the ground for you to feed them.
The hummingbirds, the national bird of Jamaica, are part of a special experience as you sit with a bottle of their favorite drink, wait for them to perch on your outstretched finger while you feed them from the bottle. Next, you will take a walk through the garden with the guide to see the different trees and herbs before the tour ends.

We used road travel Jamaica for our trip to the bird sanctuary , our driver was Lorenzo , he couldn't have been any nicer , friendly . Picked up at our hotel and drove us to the Rocklands bird sanctuary , pointing out odd places on the way , chatted away like we knew him . He stayed with us all the time we were there and on the way back , he was still chatting away again pointing out certain areas and was happy to stop anywhere we wanted before dropping us of at our hotel. I would highly recommend Road Travel Jamaica , and highly recommend visiting Rocklands bird Sanctuary , feeding the humming birds was an amazing experience.
