Birds Spotted in Gran Azul Panama

March 31st, 2016

In the  ten days that I spent in Gran Azul I took some time with  Daniel asking  him to  tell me about the birds he spots.  Before answering my question Daniel explains to me: “ if you want to know  birds you first have to know their song.”  And indeed, he calls the birds imitating their sound and they answer….  Daniel has bird watched – as you know – with George R. Angehr, who mentions Daniel in his “ A bird finding Guide to Panama” on page 182. With the following list which I got from Daniel I will refer to the pages of George R. Angehr’s book “ The birds of Panama- a field guide.”

First of all Daniel asked me to be sure to mention that he has spotted the Spectacled Owl ( Pulsatrix perspicillata) in Gran Azul. In the field guide Gran Azul is not mentioned but Daniel is absolutely certain and would like to contact George Angehr.
