central Panama (briefly!) 2009
From March 21-25, 2009 Sheridan and I were in Panama. On the 23rd Sheridan broke her ankle, and the rest of the curtailed trip was spent waiting for it to be safe to fly home. My birding consisted of one whole day and an early morning at Burbayar looking (in vain) for the Xenornis, plus two hours at the Metropolitan Park in the City; CLICK HERE to see a page all about Burbayar Lodge:
