First things first: anybody who’s interested in birdwatching in Panama should check out the Panama Birdwatching facebook page. I had no idea it existed until a guest pointed me out, but apparently it is very well visited by birdwatching experts, so if you have any questions, or would like to identify an unknown bird, this is the place to go.
This morning I had a surprise visitor. A toucan, but in town! Plenty of toucans if you go up into the mountains, but this is the first time in four years that I saw and heard one in town. It was hanging out right beside the hotel, where there is a creek with several mature trees. Before we got this property I was hoping that this strip of jungle would attract special birds, and it does.
No pictures unfortunately; reminder: buy a new camera.
