Panama 2019: Canopy Tower Migration Spectacular

October 18 - 25, 2019
Tour Length: 8 days Est. Spaces Left: 8

Come join us for a week witnessing the magic of fall migration through Panama. Based at the world-renowned Canopy Tower, the tour will take in visits to both their own hawkwatch (Semaphore Hill) and to the world-famous Ancon Hill. We will visit at the peak of raptor movement when daily passage of hawks might range anywhere from the tens of thousands all the way up to a record breaking 2 million birds that were tallied on one day in Panama City in 2014!

As well as the astonishing passage of migrant raptors there will be incredible local hawks to enjoy including everything from the magnificent King Vulture to the diminutive Tiny Hawk. Other migrants on their way south will include large numbers of shorebirds as well as a mix of interesting warblers, tanagers, thrushes and vireos. As well as the migrant birds we will enjoy birding that will garner us a host of incredible and bejeweled resident neotropical bird species: hummingbirds, motmots, toucans, antbirds, tanagers, parrots and a whole host more (290+ species in 2018 with 35 species of raptors).

    Accomodations

    Comfortable at Canopy Tower. All seven nights at the tower.  Canopy Tower has single rooms that do not require a single supplement, so until they are filled there is no single supplement required. Note that single rooms have shared bathrooms, it’s one of the quirks of this unique and incredible location. Shared bathrooms are kept spotlessly clean.To book a double room (which does have an en suite bathroom) as a single traveler would involve a single supplement.  The upgrade fee for the suites is US$200.00 + 10% taxes per person and single supplement is US$50.00 + 10% taxes per night, so total for 7 nights is US$350.00 +10% taxes.
