Join us for a visit to tropical Panama. Canopy Camp is in the Darien in southern Panama and is home to many South American species as well as unique Central American species. Gray-cheeked Nunlets, Dusky-backed Jacamars, Golden-headed Manakins and Royal Flycatchers are frequently seen. Furthermore, we’ll take exciting day trips to El Salto Road, Filo del Tallo Hydrological Reserve, Tierra Nueva Foundation, to the end of the road at Yaviza and along the Río Chucunaque by boat to visit a local Embera village. Harpy Eagle, the national bird of Panama, is very likely to be seen on this trip. World renowned Canopy Tower provides spectacular views of the forest canopy. Lodging and our base of operations will be the Canopy Tower with unlimited access to the fabulous Observation Deck every morning, afternoon and evening, where we’ll enjoy “canopy birding” at its best! We’ll take excursions to some of Panamá’s premier birding locations, including the world famous Pipeline Road, along with Semaphore Hill, Plantation Trail, Summit Ponds, and Panamá Rainforest Discovery Center and its remarkable tower, Chagres River. Gamboa and the marshy Ammo Ponds round out an outstanding week of birding.
