Green Castle nature lodge is one of the premier birding destinations not just in the Caribbean, but also globally. With a perfect climate all year round , species like the Red-billed Streamertail, Vervain Hummingbird and Jamaican Mango are hard to miss, even while eating on the dining terrace! Many other endemics are regularly encountered on a short walk, including colourful species like Jamaican Tody, Jamaican Woodpecker, Jamaican Parakeet and Yellow-shouldered Grassquit. During autumn and winter, a range of colourful North American wood warblers adds to the birding spectacle.
Whilst most species are to be found in the extensive rainforest, our reservoir also attracts an interesting diversity of birds including the local race of Northern Jacana and the elusive West Indian Whistling-duck. Open areas attract Barn Owls and Antillean Night-hawks. The coast has breeding White-tailed Tropicbirds and at dusk, hundreds of egrets and herons arrive to roost in the mangroves. After dark, the Jamaican Owl and Northern Potoo can be found close to the main house.
You will be surrounded by birds from dawn to dusk!
We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful estate and all it has to offer and explore. If we can assist with any upcoming birding tours, eco-trips and vacations please do not hesitate to contact us.
