More Panama Birds

I am linking up with Friday Ark  and Camera Critters

These are more pic's from my birding outing with Justo of Panama's Just Adventures

Arriving a day early for our tour allowed hubby and I to go out for our day of birding. Justo took us to the Discovery Center and the famous Pipeline Road. I got 30 new lifers from our Panama trip.

These are some of the birds and a sloth we saw at the Pipeline Rd and the Rainforest Discovery Center.



Pipeline Rd sloth,  the first of three sloths we saw while in Panama for the week.



Rufous Motmot a beautiful bird and one of my 30 new lifers.



Social Flycatcher....lifer



Crimson Crested Woodpecker, similiar to the Pileated Woodie I see at home. Near this same spot we saw a Black Striped Woodcreeper. I was sorry to see it fly away before I could snap a pic. Both of these birds were also lifers.




Lots of new Hummingbird lifers, like the White Necked Jacobin another lifer.


The Pipeine Road, famous spot for birding in Panama.



A group of Black Bellied Whistling ducks, these are one of my favorite ducks. At this spot we saw the ducks, GB Heron, Wattled Jacana, Ringed Kingfisher, a beautiful Blue Dacnis. I was sorry to see that my photos of these beautiful birds were just a blurry mess. But, it was still exciting to see all of these new birds.

I hope you enjoyed my birds and sloth post. I hope you all have a great weekend and Happy Birding.

I hope you can check out more birds and animals on the Friday Ark  and Camera Critters.  Thanks to the host of Friday Ark and to Misty Dawn of Camera Critters. I look forward to these memes and to seeing all the birds and critters.

  27. Geeez! Panama! I'm envious. What a blast. I'd have to buy a badzillion more gigs of memory cards, that's for sure!

  28. You did great in Panama. Both of my visits were non-birding ones. Over 40 years ago I studied tropical medicine in Panama City, but because there was so much travel and field work I was limited to 10 Kg of luggage, so the binoculars and bird books had to stay home. A more recent trip that included the Darien Jungle and the San Blas Islands was non-birding and I was not yet into photography.

  29. Hi Eileen, As you can guess, my favorite is the Crested Woodpecker! I have never seen one but it is quite similar as you said, to the Pileated. Have an excellent Sunday!

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is my blog about the birds I see, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They might not always be the best of photos because I like to keep photos as a record of where and when I see them.
I appreciate all your comments and I will always try to return the favor and visit your blog.

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!
Have a great day, Eileen
