From here, we will visit Hardwar Gap for some of the more scarce species, including Jamaican Phoebe, Crested Quail Dove, Jamaican Becard, Rufous-tailed and Sad Flycatchers and, with luck, Jamaican Blackbird. Yellow-billed and Black-billed Parrots can both be seen. More

Visiting birders have a good chance at all the endemics; a week is a reasonable amount of time to search for them. More
