Birds Sing Sweetly at Shaw Park Garden, Ocho Rios

My quest, this spring morning, was to find a bird-watching guide, at Shaw Park, a relic of an old public garden, in the seaside resort town of Ocho Rios, Jamaica. I was given the tip on the bird guide, named Percy, by a waiter at the elegant Jamaica Inn, where my clients, who are elderly, a stately English couple, with bird-watching aspirations, are staying on their annual winter sojourn to the colony. Shaw Park is featured in all Jamaica guidebooks, for expansive views, natural waterfalls and some spectacular Banyan trees.
