The National Bird of Jamaica

QUESTION:

What is the national bird of Jamaica?



ANSWER: May 21, 2010 by Wellesley Gayle



Hi Frank,

The national bird of Jamaica is the Jamaica Hummingbird, otherwise called the doctor bird.

It is said to be one of the most outstanding of the 320 species of hummingbirds and of course, it lives only in Jamaica.

These bird's beautiful feathers have no counterpart in the entire bird population and they produce iridescent colours characteristic only of that family.

Hop over and read the complete article on the doctorbird, the national bird of Jamaica. I hope that helps. Stay in touch.
