  • A two week birding adventure to one of North America's most bird-rich countries, where we explore three main birding regions; the Panama Canal Zone, the Chiriqui Highlands and the Darien Lowlands.
  • Visit the famous Pipeline Road, where tropical forests are home to a vast array of birds. With any luck we'll encounter an army ant swarm and and watch antbirds, antpittas and perhaps the sought-after Rufous-vented Ground-Cuckoo. 
  • Spend two nights in El Valle, a town nestled in the caldera of an ancient volcano. Birds we may find include the Snowcap, White-tipped Sicklebill, Tody Motmot and Spot-crowned Barbet.
  • We will have two days to explore the Talamanca Mountains, where we hope to see Resplendent Quetzels.
  • While in the Darien region, we will make it a priority to look for Crested and / or Harpy eagles.
  • In addition to birds, Panama offers excellent opportunities to view mammals like sloths, tamanduas, coatis and monkeys.
