Birding in the moist forests of the John Crow Mountains

Northeastern Jamaica hosts many spectacular birding habitats, some of these habitats are even unknown to most birding tour organizers.  For this reason, unfortunately, some of these are not published.  One of these areas is the lower John Crow Mountains which host several lush, green and moist forests that form several clusters of peaceful, jungle like canopies which seems endless as you walk along.  Although this second to none birding paradise is shaken up by deforestation caused by storms in the past and persons clearing land for farming on the edge of the National Park, all of Jamaica's twenty nine (29) bird species can still be found in various areas of these evergreen, forests.   

During your holidays in Jamaica, we will be  happy to have you joining one of our single day birding tours to the lower John Crow Mountains.  If you are holidaying in other areas of Jamaica, we recommend that you spend even one (1) night in northeastern Jamaica; in order to have less driving time to this spectacular bird-haven.   Our main aim on this tour, is to help bird watchers to enjoy their morning while birding with us.  This untouched natural forest has all that naturalist desires such as marvelous birding, lots of unusual plants plus various eatable fruits which are fresh from their trees, growing wild. 

At the end of your tour you will agree with us that one day's birding in these forests is not enough.  Apart from birding, your love for the wild and lushness of a forest will widen.  This for sure will enhance your wanting to return to this glorious birding paradise.  If you are holidaying in Black River, Kingston, Ocho Rios, Montego Bay, Mandeville, Negril, Treasure Beach, we recommend that you overnight in Port Antonio or other areas of northeastern Jamaica, in order to have less time to drive to these forests in order to start birding at six (6) am.  If you are holidaying in Port Antonio, the driving time to these forests from your place of accommodation is about forty five (45) minutes. 

Itinerary

Based on the driving time from your place of accommodation in the Port Antonio area to the moist forests of the lower John Crow Mountains, the departure time is 5:00 am from your accommodation venue on your requested tour date.  This will allow you to arrive in the main area of these forests at or about 6:am.  On arrival, we will start bird watching at 6:00 am and bird to about  8:30 am.   At this time we will pause for breakfast somewhere in the forest.  After breakfast, we will bird for another three (3) hours before concluding our morning's birding in these lush and bird infested forests.  

We will then depart wherever we are in these forests for the northern coastline.  You will be driven back towards your place of accommodation, stopping somewhere along the coastline for a snack or full meal.  You will also be able to views of some species of water birds. After this experience, you will head back to your place of accommodation, making several stops at different location looking more birds to add to your day's count.  This will increase your chances of seeing your desired birds.  This also can advance the opportunity of comparing morning and afternoon picture qualities, based on lighting contrast during the different times of the day.
