Rockland bird sanctuary

rockland bird sanctuaryHave you ever  fed a humming bird perched gently on your finger? Then enjoy this unique experience for yourself and at the same time take the opportunity to relax unwind and see other wild Jamaican birds.

In 1954 Lisa Salmon moved into a small cottage, Rocklands, in the hills of Anchovy, over looking Montego Bay. With a strong love of nature she set about feeding local birds. Her reputation as a bird-lover and naturalist earned her the name “The Bird Lady”.

Having a constant flow of visiting bird watchers she decided to open Rocklands to the public in 1962.

Since then Rocklands has hosted thousands of people from all over the world. Royalty and “commoners” have come to this rustic setting and patiently waited for, seen and fed a variety of wild birds, both local and migratory. The favourite activity by far is the feeding of the beautiful emerald green streamer tailed hummingbird, the national bird of Jamaica.

Opening hours
Monday to Sunday
From 8:00 am to 5:30 pm.
How to find us

About three miles out of Montego Bay, along the A1 highway to Negril, turn south at Reading and continue for approximately 2 miles until you see the “Rocklands Bird Sanctuary” sign; turn left here and continue for 1\2 mile until you get to us.

Please note that all birds at this sanctuary are wild. Most may be seen closer to sunset. They do not perform on command so patience may be required at times.

Bird walks, tours and excursions can be organized for bird watchers.
