BIRD WATCHING IN PANAMA
Traditionally, Panamá has always been a well-known and internationally recognized bridge for the migration of birds, mainly because of Panamá's exceptional geographic location, situated as it is between North and South America.
Panamá is part of the biological migratory passage for lots of birds (over 970 species), with an extraordinary variety of colors and types. This has caused worldwide attention for Panamá in that, even though it is a very small country, it has more bird species than the territory of both the United States and Canada combined.
Scientifically this is because Panamá has unique diversification, including primary and secondary rainforest, beaches, mountains, many rivers and all the necessary elements for a fantastic nature life, including but not limited to birds, but also to many animals like humpbacked whales, some dolphins, the famous gold frogs, the extraordinary Arphy Eagle (which is the Panamá national bird), Tucán, among so many others impossible to list in this space. Another picturesque reason is that Panamá produces many tropical fruits, including mangos, papayas trees, and others in almost in every house back yard that attracts birds of all sizes.
Around the national territory, and all year round, you can have the pleasure of beautiful bird singing, morning and afternoon, making very joyful sunrises and sunsets.
Bird watching places? Many of them. Almost the whole country. But mainly, visitors usually go to established tours for this purpose like in Gamboa, El Valle, Summit Gardens, Darién, Taboga, Chiriquí... impossible to mention them all.
