A GUIDED TOUR OF PANAMA’S COLORFUL BIRDS
In Panama, where there is an amazing variety of environments within a small space. From marshes to dry scrub to rainforests to foothills and all the way up to mountainous cloud forests over 3,000 feet high, brightly colored resident birds share their home with thousands of migrants from distant latitudes. In this month’s presentation you will not only learn about those amazing colorful birds and ecosystems, but importantly about how birding in Panama will support a local group’s efforts to preserve them.
A native of Panama City, our guide, Guido Berguido, describes himself as a biologist by training, a tour leader by accident, and a conservationist at heart. He was instrumental in founding the 1,500-acre Cerro Chucantí Private Natural Reserve and the ADOPTA Rainforest Association. He has earned degrees in Environmental Biology, Tourism Administration, and even an MBA. And for more than 25 years he has been steeped in the rich avifauna and ecosystems of Panama.
