From September through April, Jamaica's mountains, gardens and coffee plantations are home to many of our warblers like the northern parula, Cape May, black-throated-blue, myrtle, black-throated green, prairie, redstart, prothonotary, worm-eating, ovenbird, northern and Louisiana waterthrushes, and common yellowthroat.
Much of this riverine forest still exists because of timber harvesting difficulties and it is here the Cerulean, Yellow-throated, and Worm-eating Warblers, Louisiana Waterthrushes and Northern Parulas arrive early in spring and linger into summer.
