Day 1 Panama

Caught my flight at 6:00a.m. out of Toronto, connecting through Washington DC to Panama City. Flights were uneventful except my checked backpack didn't make it to Panama City! (Not my fault I'll add). So yeah, not a very great start to my trip! At least I have my binoculars... But I put my camera in with my checked baggage since my carry on was full so I won't be able to take any photos for a day or two?...

Wasn't able to do any birding since the airport became a massive time suck and headache.  Birds seen from taxi and around my hostel were all common things and no lifers:

Black Vulture
Turkey Vulture
Wood Stork
Magnificent Frigatebird
Brown Pelican
Gull sp.
Tern sp.
Heron sp.
Egret sp.
Bird Sp
Great-tailed Grackle
Yellow-headed Caracara
Rock Pigeon


  1. Yikes! Hope the rest goes smoother for ya

  2. It's starting to look up! My bag arrived at the hostel safe and sound!

  3. Same thing happened to me with the baggage when I went to Texas....pretty annoying, but we got all my stuff, and everything was smooth sailing from the on.
