Lifers for our guides!

This year's annual Canopy Family guide reunion included a day of birding in the upper foothills of western Panama in Omar Torrijos (El Cope) National Park. In the lush cloud forest, among 81 species of birds seen during the day was a very special bird, a BARE-NECKED UMBRELLABIRD emerged from the misty forest. This bird appeared to be possibly a young male. It was a mega lifer for a majority of the team!

Other great birds seen during the day were Black-headed Antthrush, Purplish-backed Quail-Dove, Yellow-eared Toucanet, Stripe-breasted Wren, Smoky-brown Woodpecker, Orange-bellied Trogon and Tawny-capped Euphonia!
