Black-billed (or Eastern) Streamertail (Trochilus polytmus scitulus)
Habits: Feeding habits are similar to red-billed Streamertail.
Habitat: Only found in the humid eastern section of Jamaica, from Port Antonio (particularly the San San area) east to Bowden on the southeast coast and in the John Crow Mountains, Cornpuss Gap and Bath. Rarely found with Red-billed Streamertails except where their ranges overlap.
Jamaican Elaenia (Myiopagis cotta)

Jamaican Oriole (Icterus leucopteryx)

Habitat: Common in gardens and forests at all elevations.
Jamaican Lizard Cuckoo (Saurothera vetula)
Habits: Similar to chestnut-bellied Cuckoo but found lower in trees and shrubs. Often perches with head lower than feet. Nests in wet mountain areas: John Crow Mountains, Mandeville, as well as in the Cockpit Country. Nest a shallow saucer of criss-crossed twigs lined with leaves, placed in a tangle of branches, twigs and bromelaids. Feeds on lizards, caterpillars, locusts and nestlings of other birds.
