Panama Birding at Canopy Tower - page 1 of 5

12-15 March 2010

Collared Araari at Gamboa Resort on 15 March 2010


My third visit to Canopy Tower was a great success. Birds, birding guides and ambience at the Tower are the best. Domiciano Alveo was my excellent guide on most days, and Jose Soto also excellent guided on several trips. Carlos Bethancourt had a warm welcome and helped me with bird identification.

Scroll down for 8 photos, then go to Panama page 2.


We often found trogons near an active termite nest where both male and female were excavating the hole to build a nest.
