Birding Trip to Jamaica -- January 2012

January 14. Black River to Montego Bay.

After an early exit, we headed for Font Hill Beach Park. We birded the Black Mangrove swamp on the edge of the developed area and saw Northern Waterthrush and lots of other warblers. At mid-day in the developed area, most of us relaxed and swam in the warm waters, but I continued birding, photographing such species at Caribbean Doves, Zenaida Doves, Common Ground Doves, Stolid Flycatchers, and others.

In the afternoon, we headed north to Montego Bay in preparation for flights back to the States. After settling into a condo, I staked out a flowering tree and photographed Red-billed Streamertails, Jamaican Mango, and Vervain Hummingbirds.

At night, we went downtown to see the nightlife and enjoy a nice dinner overlooking the Caribbean Sea.
