WHAT TO EXPECT
With an early morning start expect to see by noon 60 to 80 species. And by the end of the day a final count of 97+ is common.

EATING FACILITIES
There is no eating facility in the area. 

CLOTHING
Light clothing is recommended: cotton shirts or t-shirts - earth colors preferable- long and short pants, poncho, hiking shoes, hat, insect repellent and sun block. Dress for tropical hot humid weather and be ready for rain. AREA DESCRIPTION 
Birding is done primarily along  Plantation Road which in most places the forest is clear of undergrowth, which makes it especially suited for observing shy, interior forest birds
When visiting Plantation Road you also have a good chance to find an army ant swarm and many of the birds that follow these swarms as they roam the forest floor.

WEATHER
Located in  in Central Panama /Canal Zone the climate is usually warm, with mornings in the 70s and afternoons in the 80s. Conditions at midday can be humid and very warm, with temperatures reaching into the lower 90s. Rainstorms may occur at any time of year, but are more likely during the rainy season, which runs from the summer months into early December. Generally, the weather in Central Panama is mild and pleasant, with our activities corresponding to the cooler parts of the day and heightened bird activity.

GUIDE BOOK RECOMMENDED
These two books are an example of hard work put into, and for the benefit, of conserving Panama´s birds: 
“The Birds of Panama, a field guide by George R Angehr and Robert Dean Can be described as the “bible” forPanama and some Costa Rica birds. The latest edition (1989).This excellent field guide is highly recommended as your primary reference book on the birds. 
“An Illustrated Field Guide to the Birds of Panama” by Ernesto Ponce and Giselle Muschett, 2006, 1st Edition. It can be described as “a descriptive fieldwork tool” for fast information .

BIRDS TO LOOK FOR
This is a list of birds - by memory - seen along the Achiote Road and surrounding areas on different tours, and some additions from friends, guess and people who have collaborated sharing with us their sightings. The list is continuously

on the move. Feel free to send your findings and comments to info@birdingbyboattour.com Check here for the complete list of Central Panama Birds.
