Rocklands Bird Sanctuary, Wiltshire

4.2
#4 of 11 in Parks in Saint James Parish
Experience the magic of feeding a hummingbird from your hand at Rocklands Bird Sanctuary, a unique feeding station set in the tropical gardens of a rustic cottage. Wait patiently for Jamaican mango hummingbirds, vervain hummingbirds and many other bird species that come and say hello. On arrival, grab a nectar filled bottle and the hummingbirds, who have become very accustomed to humans, will flock to you for a feed. Other species in the sanctuary include Jamaican tody, loggerhead kingbird and Jamaican orioles. For an extra fee, a guide will show you further into the lush forest to catch of glimpse of these winged inhabitants.

    Dude...we got to feed humming birds right out of our hands. Wild humming birds flew down and sat in our fingers as we fed them. Completely insane! It's worth the drive up there. It's beautiful and serene. Not too much to do besides feed birds and walk around a bit. I'm so glad my wife found this, it was a great experience! Highly recommend it for kids and adults alike.

    Serne with beautiful views of montego bay. Lovely setting and no gift shops/commercialization. The cottage is lovely and the birds are amazing! All of us (even my 4 year old) fed a hummingbird right on our fingers! Would absolutely return again.

    Bumpy road but well worth it. At least 3 species of hummingbirds perched on my finger and sipped from the bottle of sugar water.

    This was the best experience I had during my two weeks in the islands. Peaceful, meditative, and beautiful, Rockland Bird Santuary is for those amoung us who love the natural world and have an appreciation for people who take care of and pay attention to it. You may want to save your bucks and swim with sharks if you are interested in cheap thrills. Thank you, Rockland.
