WHAT TO EXPECT
With an early morning start, expect to see by noon 60 to 80 species. By the end of the day a final count of 90+ is common.

AREA DESCRIPTION
Birding is done by walking through the first 4 km passing through tall secondary and mature tropical forest with some scrubbier areas. Along the way many small creeks will cross the road and give good opportunity to get into and follow them for specific species.
The road was built in the late 1930 to service a pipeline that crossed from ocean to ocean but was never used.

WEATHER
The climate in Central Panama /Canal Zone is usually warm, with mornings in the 70s and afternoons in the 80s. Conditions at midday can be humid and very warm, with temperatures reaching into the lower 90s. Rainstorms may occur at any time of year, but are more likely during the rainy season, which runs from the summer months into early December. Generally, the weather in Central Panama is mild and pleasant, with our activities corresponding to the cooler parts of the day and heightened bird activity.
