Beautiful Panama !

Back in May 2014 I attended a conference in Orlando. Having birded that area of Florida a couple of times already I decided to look further afield. I had never been to Central America so decided a quick hop to Panama might be fun. The flight is around 3 hours so not a long stretch by any means.

I was to stay at the Canopy Lodgefor 5 days. It currently is difficult to book a private guide but when I was there the group size for the standard outings was 2 ! It’s best to use flash for some of the more dense Jungle areas, I highly recommend the Better Beamer in this environment.

I was very impressed with Panama as a whole, people were very friendly and I definitely hope to go back one day.

Difficult to pick just a few images but here are a few of my favorites.

Green Kingfisher (Chloroceryle americana)

Yellow-throated Euphonia (Euphonia hirundinacea)

Red-legged Honeycreeper (Cyanerpes cyaneus)

Plain Antvireo (Dysithamnus mentalis)


Broad-billed Motmot (Electron platyrhynchum)

Basilisk Lizard (Basiliscus basiliscus)

Rufous-tailed Hummingbird (Amazilia tzacatl)

Spectacled Owl (Pulsatrix perspicillata)

Blue-diademed Motmot (Momotus lessonii)

Pale-eyed Pygmy-tyrant (Atalotriccus pilaris)

Lesser Yellow-headed Vulture (Cathartes burrovianus)

Crested Caracara (Caracara cheriway)
