WHAT TO EXPECT
Panama bird guide
With an early morning start expect to see by noon 40-60 species. And by the end of the day a final count of 97+ is common.

AREA DESCRIPTION 
Birding is done primarily along Plantation Road in Central Panama and Canal which in most places the forest is clear of undergrowth, which makes it especially suited for observing shy, interior forest birds
When visiting Plantation Road you also have a good chance to find an army ant swarm and many of the birds that follow these swarms as they roam the forest floor.

WEATHER
Located in in Central Panama /Canal Zone the climate is usually warm, with mornings in the 70s and afternoons in the 80s. Conditions at midday can be humid and very warm, with temperatures reaching into the lower 90s. Rainstorms may occur at any time of year, but are more likely during the rainy season, which runs from the summer months into early December. Generally, the weather in Central Panama is mild and pleasant, with our activities corresponding to the cooler parts of the day and heightened bird activity.

“An Illustrated Field Guide to the Birds of Panama” by Ernesto Ponce and Giselle Muschett, 2006, 1st Edition. It can be described as “a descriptive fieldwork tool” for fast information .
