Spent a couple of hours here one morning photographing the birds. They have many bird feeders that attract quite a few species. Several hummingbirds, doves, potoo, grassquits, orangequit, etc.

Thank you all for your answers. I enjoyed my time in Jamaica, though very short. Went to a different Aviary close to Ocho Rios. Will try Rocklands on next trip, with more time.

We are on south side of town 30-45 minutes depending on traffic.
Could you tell me the cost of the sanctuary visit itself? We have a driver from Half-Moon, but would like to know additional costs in advance. Thanks.
