Page 1 from two weeks in Panama with my wife Becky, Tom Feild, and Geraldine King. This was my most extensive photo haul from any trip, so I'll be posting updates from Panama for weeks to come. There were too many highlights to list among our 300+ bird species, though it was an exceptional trip for mammals, reptiles and amphibians, and insects as well. Last updated: 7/19/2010

Collared Aracaris were wonderfully common throughout our trip. You'll see more of these guys as I post updates. Photo by Bill Hubick.

Below: Western Slaty-Antshrikes were a common rainforest species in central Panama. Their call, reminiscent of a car trying to start and finally catching, was one of the main sounds of the forests we visited (Panama, July 2010).

Below: A Broad-billed Motmot waits for the perfect flyby insect. The dirt on its bill might be from excavating a nest cavity, as this species nests in burrows in the sides of forested hills (Panama, July 2010).
