Morning Birding Session

Birdwatching Panama

A few weeks ago I went for a short morning walk around Tranquilo Bay’s gardens, to check on some of the plants I had planted recently.  In the end, I had one of the most amazing birding days I have experienced on site. I had the good fortune to be outside when things started to get active.  So I had two wonderful hours of great bird watching.

Panama Birding

Some of the highlights were two Broad-winged Hawks, a young one attacking an adult one, in front of my eyes, three young Three-wattle Bellbirds, practicing their calls, and a Stub-tailed Spadebill, playing with me while I tried to capture its picture.   On the trail during my wonderful walk, I spotted a Green Iguana, climbing to the canopy of the forest, just to make my morning even better.
