Birding>>>Panama's Pacific Playa Blanca

I am linking up with Camera Critters

Two nights of our Panama trip we stayed at the Playa Blanca Resort on the Pacific Ocean. Our Caravan tour group was able to enjoy the all inclusive resort for two nights. When we were not touring with the group we were able to enjoy the beach, pools, drinks and way too much food on the buffets. Hubby and I enjoyed our walks on the beach. The scenery was pretty and I loved watching the birds. I was surprised to see a lot of the birds I was seeing were the same birds I saw at home during the summer.

My bird list from the resort: Brown Pelicans, Magnificent Frigatebirds, Willets, Whimbrels, Sanderlings, Swallows, Yellow warbler, Tennessee Warbler, Tropical Mockingbird, Little Blue Heron, Black Vultures, Great Egret, Snowy Egret and lots of Boat Tailed Grackles.

  6. Another lovely post on the interesting birds you see, Eileen. I love the Willet and I've also never seen a Mockingbird. Your warblers look a lot like the ones we get here in EA and in South Africa. Thanks for sharing. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. Greetings, Jo

  7. You had a fine trip. I'd be delighted to see any of those birds - hardly likely here, I think.

  12. The resort sounded a swish place to stay. I'm glad you had a nice time there and saw lots of birds. Interesting that they are the same as at your home. I like the blue Heron too.

Due to some recent problems I will not be able to publish any comments that include a link. I would appreciate if you do not include any kind of links in your comments. Sorry!
