After breakfast (during which we watch for Orange-billed Sparrow calling off the end of the dining area), we head to Las Minas, an excellent place for Panama bird watching. The road follows the ridge line, with sweeping vistas of forested mountains, speckled with grasslands and small fincas. The views from here are fantastic, as on a clear day near the summit, both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans can be seen! Specialties of the region include Black-and-yellow-, Bay-headed- & Emerald Tanagers, Tawny-capped Euphonia, Scalecrested Pygmy-Tyrant, Spot-crowned Antvireo, Gray-headed Kite, Barred Hawk, Bat Falcon, Ornate Hawk-Eagle, Swallow-tailed Kite, Bronze-tailed Plumeleteer, White-tipped Sicklebill, Green Thorntail, Orange-bellied- & Black-throated Trogons, Wedge-tailed Grass-Finch, Tawny-faced Gnatwren, Plain Antvireo, the endemic Stripe-cheeked Woodpecker, Spotted Woodcreeper, Red-capped- & White-ruffed Manakins, Band-rumped Swift and Black Guan have all been recorded here!

Day 3
AM: LA MESA ROAD (15 MIN. FROM CANOPY LODGE)
After breakfast, we continue our quest for more lifers with a trip to La Mesa Road. This area, which is a visually pleasing blend of secondary forest, scrubby pastures, overgrown fincas and grassy borders, is home to many of the area’s specialties. Here is where we look for such great birds as Spot-crowned Barbet, Cinnamon Becard, Scarlet-thighed Dacnis, Silver-throated-, Golden-hooded-, Tawny-crested- & Bay-headed Tanagers, Spot-crowned Antvireo and Spotted Woodcreeper; hummers, such as White-tipped Sicklebill, Rufouscrested Coquette, Crowned Woodnymph and Black-throated Mango.

This easy trail traverses through good secondary forest, which is framed by picturesque forested mountains of Cerro Gaital Natural Monument. On todays Panama birding tour, you will see the Rosy Thrush-Tanager, Black-headed Saltator, Great Antshrike, White-ruffed Manakin, White-thighed Swallow, White-bellied Antbird and Tody Motmot; hummers, such as Long-billed Starthroat, Rufouscrested Coquette and, when the Inga is in bloom, we scan for Snowcap! We will also listen for Purplish-backed Quail-Dove.
Dinner at Canopy Lodge.


Day 4
CANOPY LODGE/ DEPARTURE TO CANOPY TOWER
No need to wake up early for today’s Panama birding tour. After a leisurely breakfast and a last look at the birds from the Canopy Lodge grounds, we’ll board a comfortable airconditioned van for the 2-hour ride to Canopy Tower, located at the top of Semaphore Hill in the rainforest of Soberanía National Park. We will arrive on time for lunch. A member of our staff will greet you as you arrive at the Tower, and you will be provided with an orientation on the use of the facilities. At this time we will answer any questions you may have. As your luggage is being ferried to your room, you may visit the dining/bar area and enjoy a refreshing drink. We highly recommend that you spend some time on the Observation Deck. The view from the platform is incredible! Here, you get a unique eyelevel perspective of the rainforest canopy. Many birds, including toucans, parrots, tanagers of various types, hawks, and dozens of others, as well as 2 species of sloths, monkeys and other mammals are commonly seen. From this vantage point you can also see ships transiting the Panama Canal, the majestic Centennial Bridge and miles of rainforest! You may also want to watch the hummingbird feeders at the base of the Tower for Long-billed Hermit, White-necked Jacobin, Violet-bellied & Blue-chested hummingbirds and Whitevented Plumeleteer. Occasionally, a Snowy-bellied Hummingbird is spotted!
Dinner at Canopy Tower.


Day 5
AM: RAPTOR WATCH: CANOPY TOWER OBSERVATION DECK/
SEMAPHORE HILL/ANCON HILL
Your guide will be waiting for you up on the Observation Deck to watch for the hawk migration, but also to help you sort out the birds that woke you up this morning! While looking for birds, you can enjoy hot coffee, tea and orange juice. Some of the bird species we hope to see from the observation deck are Green- & Red-legged Honeycreepers, Green Shrike-Vireo, Blue Cotinga, Scaled Pigeon, Mealy- & Red-lored Parrots, Keel-billed Toucan, Collared Araçari, flycatchers of various kinds and raptors, including King Vulture and Ornate Hawk-Eagle! At this time of year, hawk migration is at its peak as thousands of Broad-winged- and Swainson’s Hawks and Turkey Vultures, along with Osprey, Peregrine Falcons and perhaps a trailing Mississippi Kite or two fly long distances from their northern breeding grounds through the Isthmus to South America. It is impressive to say the least and the Observation Deck at the Canopy Tower is the best place to view this spectacle! The Canopy Tower “Semaphore Hill Hawkwatch” is an official count site for the Hawk Migration Association of North America (HMANA), and annually we count over 300,000 migrating raptors over the Canopy Tower itself, and over 3 million pass over the Isthmus of Panama. We will take every opportunity we can during this tour to view this annual event. Canopy Tower’s official hawk counter will be on the deck every day from 8 am to 5 pm, counting the raptors passing over and in the vicinity. Along with your guide, they will explain how raptor migration takes place, and how to count literally tens of thousands of raptors passing by, along with the ecological importance of surveying migrating hawks. Depending on the direction of the winds, the hawk migration can be fantastic over the Canopy Tower, or if the winds are not in our favor, then we can venture to Ancon Hill in Panama City, the highest hill in the metropolitan area, where Panama Audubon counts the migrating hawks and vultures from their observatory. On a good day, the numbers here are outstanding! Over a million birds have been known to pass over in one day during the peak of the season. Our schedule will remain rather flexible to the hawk migration conditions to make the most of this birding adventure!
PM: RAPTOR MIGRATION WORKSHOP & AMMO PONDS (15 MIN. FROM CANOPY TOWER)
This afternoon we will spend some time learning about raptor migration and hawk identification. This group of fascinating birds can present some identification challenges, and our Raptor Migration ID workshop will cover raptor migration basics, raptor ID, how raptors migrate, where they go, raptor migration hotspots & flyways, hawk migration in Panama and the importance of counting migrating raptors. This will give you a great introduction to what we will be experiencing during the week at the Canopy Tower. The Ammo Dump Ponds are located just past Gamboa on the way to Pipeline Road. It is the best place to see the elusive White-throated Crake, as well as a host of other waterbirds. Least Grebes and Purple Gallinules are common, and Rufescent Tiger-Heron and Ringed Kingfisher are also resident. Here, we often find Greater Ani, Red-legged Honeycreeper, Whooping Motmot (recent split from Blue-crowned), Yellow-tailed Oriole, Southern Lapwing, Yellow-crowned Tyrannulet, Tropical Kingbird, Scrub Greenlet, Lesser Kiskadee, Black-bellied Whistling-Duck and Panama-, Social- & Rusty-margined Flycatchers and even American Pygmy Kingfisher! This birding adventure will be excellent, as we add to our impressive list of birds.
Dinner at Canopy Tower.


Day 6
WORLD FAMOUS PIPELINE ROAD FULL DAY (20 MIN. FROM CANOPY TOWER)
After breakfast we board the Birdmobile or the Tinamu, both open-air vehicles, that take you to Pipeline Road, the best place in Central Panama to find forest birds, and one of the premier birding spots in the world! Eight species of wrens, five trogons, four puffbirds, three motmots, several tanagers, Great Jacamar, Common Potoo and Pheasant Cuckoo; Greater Ani, Gray-necked Wood-Rail and Gray-headed Chachalaca; Forest Elaenia, Panama Flycatcher, Blue Ground-Dove, Little Tinamou and many other birds have been recorded here, including the elusive Rufous-vented Ground-Cuckoo and the majestic Harpy Eagle! And if its 17 km are not enough, there’s plenty of side trails, plus 11 creeks and rivers that can be followed into the forest. We will also search for Streak-chested Antpitta and Black-faced Antthrush. Army ant swarms are found frequently, attended by a host of birds including, Bicolored-, Ocellated- & Spotted antbirds. Plus, we will look for Goldencollared-, Red-capped- & Blue-crowned manakins, always enjoyed by birders. Pipeline Road is also a great place for raptors. Three forest-falcons are resident and Tiny Hawk, Semiplumbeous Hawk, Ornate- & Black hawk-eagles may be seen, and we will keep our eyes on the skies overhead for migrants passing over the Caribbean slope. Purple-throated Fruitcrow, Black-crowned- & Masked tityras, Cinnamon- & Crimson-crested woodpeckers, Scarlet-rumped Cacique, Red-lored- & Brown-hooded parrots, Collard Araçari, Blackmandibled- & Keel-billed toucans, Black-striped-, Northern Barred- & Plain Brown woodcreepers may be found to name a few! We will enjoy a picnic lunch in the forest. The afternoon holds more birding in store for us as we move deeper into the forest before returning back to the Canopy Tower for dinner.


Day 7
AM: SUMMIT PONDS & OLD GAMBOA ROAD (10 MINUTES FROM CANOPY TOWER)
Old Gamboa Road and the associated ponds at Summit are great places to find a wide variety of Canal Area birds. At Summit Ponds, we will scan for Green-, Striated-, Capped- & Boat-billed herons as well as Green-, Ringed-, Amazon-, Green-and-rufous- (rare) & American Pygmy kingfishers, which are all resident here! Also we seek out Rusty-margined- & Streaked flycatchers, Lesser- & Great kiskadees, Greater Ani, Mangrove Swallow, Bat Falcon, Cocoa Woodcreeper and Lineated Woodpecker. Going straight past the two ponds we’ll be on Old Gamboa Road, one of the birdiest spots around. This road passes through a variety of habitats and has plenty of specialties, including Blue Ground-Dove, Great Antshrike, Jet Antbird, Black-tailed, Bran-colored & Royal flycatchers, Lance-tailed & Golden-collared manakins and the delightful Rosy Thrush-Tanager! We also hope to find species like White-bellied Antbird, Yellow-bellied Elaenia, Yellow-backed Oriole, Boatbilled & Fork-tailed flycatchers, Yellow-headed Caracara, Crane Hawk, Black-chested Jays and more. Also resident are Gray-headed Chachalaca, with Spectacled Owl a real possibility, too, as the guides know where they often roost.
Lunch at Canopy Tower.
PM: RAPTOR WATCH: METROPOLITAN PARK & ANCON HILL (25 MIN. FROM CANOPY TOWER)
“Metro Park”, encompassing 265 hectares, has the distinction of being the only large forested park within a metropolitan capital in Latin America. More importantly, it protects 192 hectares of Dry Lowland Pacific Forest, yielding bird species that are difficult to find elsewhere. We will start our morning here with some high-quality birding! The beautiful Rosy Thrush-Tanager is here, as is the striking Lance-tailed Manakin. It’s also a good place to find Southern Bentbill, Rufous-and-white, Plain & Rufous-breasted wrens, Dusky Antbird, Crimson-crested, Lineated & Red-crowned woodpeckers. Plain-colored, Palm, Blue-gray & Golden-hooded tanagers are common; Red-legged & Green honeycreepers, Whooping Motmot (recent split from Blue-crowned), Keel-billed Toucan, Collared Araçari and the endemic Yellow-green Tyrannulet are resident along with Forest & Greenish elaenias. The Central American Agouti, a rainforest rodent, is often seen here, too. A mirador along Mono Titi trail is a good spot to witness the mass migration of thousands of Turkey Vultures, Swainson’s & Broad-winged hawks as they fly over Panama City toward their wintering grounds in South America. Once the thermals start forming by mid morning, we will head over to Ancon Hill, where several overlooks from this promontory yield excellent views of the city as well as the hawk migration!
Dinner and night at Riande Airport Hotel.


Day 8
BAYANO LAKE & TRANSFER TO CANOPY CAMP DARIEN (5 HOURS FROM CANOPY TOWER)
After an early breakfast at Canopy Tower, we will depart for Canopy Camp Darien! The journey to the final destination of our Panama birding tour is approximately 5 hours, but we will make stops along the way in exciting birding areas. As we drive east along the Pan-American Highway, we will scan for roadside birds and open-field raptors including Savanna Hawk and Crested Caracara. Our first scheduled stop will be at the bridge at Bayano Lake, a great opportunity to stretch our legs and see what we can see along the lakeside. This reservoir supports great amounts of water birds, including a large colony of Neotropic Cormorants, as well as Anhinga, Cocoi Heron and the rare Bare-throated Tiger- Heron. We will scan the water’s edge for Purple Gallinule, Pied Water-Tyrant, Smoothbilled Ani and Ruddy-breasted Seedeater. A short trail leading from the water’s edge is a great place to search for Black Antshrike, Bare-crowned Antbird, Rufous-winged Antwren and Golden-collared Manakin. At another great stop along the way, Río Mono Bridge, the surrounding forest is home to One-colored Becard, Black-headed Tody-Flycatcher, Blue Cotinga, Pied Puffbird, Orange-crowned Oriole, Blue Ground-Dove and more. We will also scan the river below for Green-and-rufous Kingfisher and the elusive Fasciated Tiger- Heron. While enjoying a lovely Panamanian lunch, the hummingbirds at the feeders will no doubt capture our attention, as Long-billed Starthroat, Sapphire-throated Hummingbird, Scaly-breasted Hummingbird, Black-throated Mango and more take their lunch as well; great hummingbird photo opportunities here!
Lunch in Torti.
After a delicious lunch, we will head back to the Pan-American Highway and continue east. We will carry on from here to Canopy Camp Darien, and arrive before daylight fades so we can settle into our tents and get acquainted with the setting. After a delicious dinner of fresh American and Panamanian fare, we will gather to have a meeting about the days to come, and settle into our tents for the night.
Dinner at Canopy Camp.


Day 9

Yellowthroated and Keel-billed toucans call from the towering Cuipo trees; Red-lored and Mealy parrots fly overhead; White-bellied Antbird, Bright-rumped Attila, White-headed Wren and Golden-headed Manakin sing from the surrounding forests; while Pale-bellied Hermit and Sapphire-throated Hummingbird visit the flowers around camp. Rufous-tailed Jacamar and Barred Puffbird are also seen frequently around the lodge. We will be served a hearty breakfast at 7:30 am.

Lunch at Canopy Camp.
PM: BIRDING THE PANAMERICAN HIGHWAY TO YAVIZA (1 HOUR FROM CANOPY CAMP)
After lunch we can enjoy the hummingbirds and other species around the camp, dip our feet in the rocky stream or have a siesta.

Black-billed Flycatcher, Sooty-headed Tyrannulet, Jet Antbird, Black Oropendola, Pied Water-Tyrant, Bicolored Hawk, Black-collared Hawk, Pearl Kite, Whitetailed Kite, Limpkin, Spot-breasted Woodpecker, Ruddy-breasted Seedeater, Yellowhooded Blackbird, Black-capped Donacobius and Red-breasted Blackbird can all be found as we head farther into Darién today. We will return to camp in time to freshen up for dinner. After dinner we will gather to look for owls, including Striped, Crested, Barn, Black-and-white and Mottled owls, as well as Common and Great potoos and likely some nocturnal mammals. We will end the day with our checklist, tallying our sightings for our first full day at the Canopy Camp!
Dinner at Canopy Camp.


Day 10
CRESTED EAGLE FULL DAY
The Crested Eagle is our target for the day! Today we will start very early, long before sunrise, and drive to Yaviza, at the end of the Pan-American Highway. Arriving at dawn in Yaviza, we will board a “piragua”—a dugout canoe, and traverse the still waters of the Chucunaque and Tuira rivers. The river edges offer shrub and grass habitat, as well as mudflats and beaches depending on the water level. There are plenty of birds to see along the riverside: Neotropic Cormorant, Anhinga, Great Blue, Cocoi, Little Blue, Tricolored, Striated and Capped herons, Snowy Egret, White Ibis, Green Ibis, Yellow-crowned Night-Heron, Pied Water-Tyrant, Bronzed Cowbird, Yellow-hooded Blackbird and both Crested and Black oropendolas. White-tailed Kite, Black-collared Hawk and Common Black-Hawk may be found cruising overhead. Upon arrival in El Real, we can scan the open areas for Spot-breasted Woodpecker and Great Potoo. We will meet a local truck and head south out of town past the airstrip, to the trailhead toward the border of Darien National Park! This trail is wide, traversing through lowland rainforest and alongside a river. If very lucky, we may see Harpy Eagle or Crested Eagle, both of these magnificent raptors roam the dense forests here. Hopefully with some success this morning, we can rest and have a picnic lunch in the field, and continue to bird along the trail. Other large forest eagles, including Ornate Hawk-Eagle and Crested Eagle, can also be found in the area, as well as Gray-cheeked Nunlet, White-fronted Nunbird, Green-and-rufous Kingfisher, Agami Heron, Red-throated Caracara, Chestnut-backed Antbird (the eastern Panama race shows white dots on the wings), Chestnut-fronted and Great Green macaws, Scarlet-browed Tanager and more. After lunch and a break, we will retrace our steps and start our way back to El Real, then head back to Yaviza by river. Along the Pan-American Highway, we can scan for bird activity as the sun sets in the horizon. Picnic lunch on the way, dinner at Canopy Camp.


Day 11
HARPY EAGLE (45 MINUTES FROM CANOPY CAMP) FULL DAY
Harpy Eagles live in remote mature forest, and a full day trip is required to visit the site available. The following description gives you an idea of what a Harpy Eagle excursion entails:
The Harpy Eagle is our target for the day!
Today we revisit the same area as yesterday. Picnic lunch on the way, dinner at Canopy Camp.


Day 12
AM: SAN FRANCISCO NATURE RESERVE (2.5 HOURS FROM CANOPY CAMP)
We will wake before dawn to pack and have an early breakfast, say our goodbyes to the Canopy Camp, and start our journey back to Panama City. We will stop at San Francisco Nature Reserve, a private forest reserve owned and managed by the St. Francis Foundation, covering 1,300 acres in eastern Panama Province, and we will spend this morning’s Panama birding tour at this fantastic site. The San Francisco Reserve was established in 2001 by Father Pablo Kasuboski, an American priest from Wisconsin who came to Panama in 1988. The reserve serves as a wildlife refuge and protects the headwaters of the main rivers of the area. The foundation created by Padre Pablo, as Father Kasuboski is called, also works on infrastructure development in the area by building and maintaining aqueducts, roads, schools and churches. In fact, the St. Francis Foundation built and maintains the largest private rural aqueduct in all of Panama and Central America. The reserve has a variety of habitats including primary, secondary and riparian forests, forest edge, fields, farmland, ponds and wetlands. During our morning here, we will explore the some of the different habitats along the short road that enters the reserve. We will hope to find Great Jacamar, Broad-billed Motmot, Collared Aracari, Russet-winged Schiffornis, Royal Flycatcher, White-fronted Nunbird, Brownish Twistwing, Yellow-green Tyrannulet, Central American Pygmy-Owl, Blue and Plain-breasted ground-doves, and if we’re very lucky, a Black-and white Hawk-Eagle soaring overhead or a Wing-banded Antbird along the trails!
Lunch in Torti.

PM: RETURN TO PANAMA CITY
After lunch, we head back to Panama City. We will end our Panama birding tour at Tocumen Airport.
