Macaw sightings at Canopy Camp Darien!
May 28 2018
Around mid-day today, Canopy Family guide Carlos Bethancourt reports a pair of GREAT GREEN MACAWS perched in view at the Canopy Camp, and a pair of BLUE-AND-YELLOW MACAWS flying overhead! The 5 species of macaws found in Panama are generally rare, and Great Green Macaws are an endangered species. Darien is a stronghold for these species and many other rare and range-restricted birds.

May 28 2018
The Brown Violetear is a unique hummingbird locally found in the foothills of Central and South America. To our surprise, Canopy Family guide Carlos Bethancourt spotted one at the Canopy Camp yesterday, in the Darien lowlands. This very unexpected hummingbird was feeding at the verbenas beside the dining room. A new species for Canopy Camp Darien!

On May 2, Canopy Family guide Eliecer Rodriguez reported a marvellous day of birding on the full day excursion to see a Harpy Eagle, with of course, great views of the Harpy! Even more, a pair of Blue-and-yellow Macaws AND an endangered Great Green Macaw were spotted in the same tree, something we have never encountered up until now. These exciting birds, along with many others, made for a great day in Darien.
