December - March Many visiting summer and winter migrants - singing & nesting activity widespread - (number of bird species in Jamaica almost doubles in the winter months due to the arrival of North American migrants)
February - June Great time to go birding as it is the breeding season for local birds (Winter migrants leave by the end of May)
August - September Hunting Season - Not a good time for birds or birdwatchers. In Jamaica almost all birds and eggs are protected by law - (Wild Life Protection Act) - Excluded are a few game birds - The National Environmental Planning Agency (NEPA) is the agency responsible for environmental matters such as the issuing of shooting permits
