Pipeline Road – birding in Panama
On March 17 we had a great day birding on Pipeline Road, near the Panama Canal. One of the great birding locations in Panama. Our guide Jacobo Ortega was amazing. He called the birds so we could see them – no, not with taped songs, but by whistling.
On this half-day tour we were able to see at least 30 bird species and even Howler Monkeys, Anteater, Sloths, some reptiles and insects.
I am not used to take photos in the Jungle, so some of the photos are a little dark, but you can still click on them to enlarge. 🙂
