Birdwatching in Panamá

Panamá is home and a place of pilgrimage to more than 1,000 bird species. The tropical isthmus hosts diverse migratory and endemic birds due to its geographic location between North and South America and the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Panamá is home to 10% of the world’s known bird species and 107 endemic species and has more of a variety of birds than the United States and Canada combined. Panamá is also one of the five migratory bird corridors in the world. 

All that makes Panamá the perfect year-round destination for bird-watching, though each season may bring different sightings. From endemic to migratory birds escaping the North and South American winters, Panamá is a sanctuary of color and song.
