Rockland Feeding Sanctuary: Montego Bay Attractions, Jamaica
Rocklands Bird Feeding Station is a bird sanctuary where you can watch, photograph or handfeed a bird yourself.
For most people the highlight of a visit to Rocklands is the chance to hand feed humming birds from the patio. Several species of hummingbird (including the doctor bird, Jamaica's national bird) are tame enough to fly down from the trees, perch on your finger and drink nectar from a bird feeder. Finches and quits will also come to eat millet seed from your hand. You can also taked a tour around the grounds where your knowledgeable guide, Fritz, will point out many species of bird and plant life.
Rocklands was established by Lisa Salmon, one of Jamaica's first environmentalists. Miss Salmon or "the bird lady" as she was affectionately known purchased the Rocklands property in 1954. She spent her time writing, painting and feeding birds. It didn't take long for the house to attract a wide variety of birds and by 1962 Miss Salmon opened Rocklands to the public. Lisa sadly died in 2000 at the age of 96 but her legacy lives on.
Rocklands is now run by Lisa's nephew and managed by Fritz. Fritz has been working at Rocklands for over 15 years and has a gift for spotting and beckoning the birds which dwell in the surrounding trees.
The Rockland's Bird Feeding Sanctuary at Anchovy is approximately 30 minutes away from Montego Bay by car.
