Panama's National Bird

Our third in a series of Panama trips is just wrapping up. What a great country to bird in Panama is, with an incredible concentration of birds in a small, easily accessible area. One bird, however, that defies the "easily accessible" label: Harpy Eagle, Panama's national bird and a symbol of the America's tropical wilderness. Adam Sell, guiding the Dariรฉn extension to our Top Birding Lodges of Panama tour, sent in this photo, which he took after a long boat ride and a two hour hike to the site! WHAT A BIRD!
