Wild and remote, the Darién's lowlands are full of both North and South American wildlife. This tour explores the dense western jungles interspersed with open agricultural areas of Panama's Darién region where new Central American records are being made with sightings of northward-spreading species like Southern Lapwing, Whistling Heron, Pearly-breasted Cuckoo, Slender-billed Kite, Cattle Tyrant, and Yellow-hooded Blackbird.
We will stay at the luxurious Canopy Camp, located in a protected zone at the base of forested slopes. This camp will provide a comfortable base for a great week of Neotropical birding.
Our accommodations will be spacious, walk-in, African-style tents, mounted on platforms, and replete with full-sized beds, fans, solar electricity, and with adjoining (right outside the tent, on the same deck) private bathrooms with hot-water showers and flush toilets. The camp sits in a clearing surrounded by rich forest, buzzing with bird activity. Loud calls of various parrots, caracaras, and oropendolas will coax us to wakefulness each morning.
