Forrest is truly a pleasure. His bird-finding skills, both by sight and ear, are phenomenal, but even more striking is his singular personality and people skills. Always enthusiastic. Not only would I travel with Forrest again, I preferentially would select a tour if he was guiding.
Panama Birding Tour
Panama is a superb birding tours destination that allows us to explore some of the most accessible rainforests and high-altitude cloud forests on Earth. The native flora is simply stunning, and more than 10.000 species have been already identified. With roughly 29% of its territory protected within 15 nature reserves, Panamá is fast becoming a must-see destination for nature travellers the world over. Situated perfectly as a natural land bridge between the Americas, Panama also holds an incredible diversity of bird species and offers the perfect introduction to Neotropical birding. A whopping 978+ species have been recorded in this tropical paradise – that’s more than the USA & Canada combined – and in a country about the size of South Carolina! Furthermore, Panama birding is a joy as long travel days and arduous hikes are not necessary.
