Most of these trips find more than 350 species over ten days with well-planned itineraries and top Panamanian guides. This trip combines the best central Panama birding destinations (including Pipeline Road and Metropolitan Park) with the western highlands (Resplendent Quetzal and several regional endemics not possible elsewhere in Panama), and also gives a fine sample of birding in Darién (White-eared Conebill, Orange-crowned Oriole).
