Panama Birding Spectacular

  • Panama is a great location for persons who are falling in love with Central and South American birding.  For many, Panama is their second trip to Central American birding.

  • For first time Panama birders, each day brings 30 to 40 life birds, with travel between most major sites being less than 2 hours.

  • Most of these trips find over 350 species over ten days with well-planned itineraries and top Panamanian guides.

  • Among other birds, 25 hummingbird species and 25+ tanager species are seen on most trips.  Also possible are a number of regional endemics like Southern Bentbill, Black-hooded Antshrike, Fiery-billed Aracari, Stripe-tailed Hummingbird, Volcano Hummingbird, Yellow-green Tyrannulet,  Stripe-cheeked Woodpecker, Tacarcuna Bush-Tanager, and Black Antshrike.

  • Birding with a great local guide usually means finding twice as many species as going out alone. Local guides know the best way to spend a productive day birding, covering a number of key sites in a well-planned itinerary.

  • Trip extensions include western Darién and/or the Chiriquí Highlands.
