Bocas Del Toro and Panama City

8 days 157 species 37 lifersView on eBird

This was another vacation trip where I managed to fit in some birding. I wasn't exactly staying in prime areas for birding, so overall it wasn't my best birding trip, but I did pick up 35 lifers which was alright. My time was mostly split between Panama City area and the little island of Bocas Del Toro. I made it to the famous Pipeline Road spot about 40 mins out of Panama City on my first day. I wanted to go back but I ended up getting into a car accident (not my fault) which disrupted my plans a little! Regardless, here's a selection of some of my less bad shots.

One of the few birds that actually posed nicely. Taken at the Pipeline Road.

The gardens surounding the Biomuseum were surprisingly good for hummingbirds that I didn't see anywhere else.
