Birds of Panama

With a little bit of research I found there are about 1,000 different kinds of birds in Panama. Being a land-bridge between North and South America means Panama shares the bounty of both continents. Though not an avid birder, I’ve seen some wonderful specimens up here on the side of the mountain. Yesterday, on a long walk down the back road near the house, I spotted this bird without the help of binoculars.

Though not 100% certain, my best guess would be it is not an indigenous species.

  1. I haven’t laughed so hard in several days!

    Have you ever seen it? It’s just around the corner from you. If you haven’t, go out to the dirt road that runs down to Avicola and hang a right. You can spot the field on the right by a set of tanks.
