This program will describe a spring birding trip to Central Panama centered around two popular ecolodges: Canopy Lodge in El Valle de Anton and Canopy Tower in the lowland rainforest of Soberania National Park. Many colorful, iconic tropical birds will be illustrated with photos including: toucans, parrots, trogons, motmots, antbirds, oropendolas, hummingbirds, warblers, and tanagers. Other subjects will include tropical butterflies, reptiles, monkeys, and the quirky, painted “red devil” buses.
