After dinner at the Mockingbird Hill B&B one night we went out in search of the Jamaican Owl. This endemic species is one of two owl species found in Jamaica (the other is the Barn Owl). Our guide Jay played the call of the Jamaican Owl into the darkness and heard a faint response. He led us over to a clearing and shined his flashlight up into a palm tree and lo and behold there sat the owl! It sat quietly for several minutes and continued to perch there after Jay turned off his light and we retreated back to the hotel.
