The Jamaican Lizard-Cuckoo is one of the endemic species I consider "missable" with the six-day itinerary I've designed for my tours to Jamaica – one or two tours almost every year since 1999 (now 13 and looking forward to my 14th tour this coming April). I base this evaluation on the experience I had one year with several heard birds that did not response to playback at all. Finally we stumbled upon one bird perched out in the open next to the road on our next-to-last day. This year we had several cooperative birds that just appeared, no playback necessary at all. Truly a fabulous endemic.
