For the birder, Lowland locations offer opportunities to spot many different species of water birds, shore birds, hawks, seed-eaters, and blackbirds. Lowland geography consists of flat, grassy farmland with winding streams leading to the ocean. Temperatures are much hotter than in the mountains around Boquete. Agriculture includes rice and sugarcane fields and pineapple farms.

General Information

This is a half-day guided trip of the water-bearing areas of the Southern Chiriquí Province, leading all the way to the ocean. Departure time is 7 am lasting 4-5 hours. This trip typically includes 2-3 stops and ends before lunch. If you would like to pack a picnic to eat in a lovely spot, this is absolutely possible! Feel free to combine birding with sightseeing or hiking.

You are encouraged to dress comfortably and wear walking shoes. A rain jacket is also a good idea, as a combination of mist and rain called bajareque is Western Panamá’s most common weather event. Cameras, binoculars, bird guides and snacks are welcome. Jason will bring a scope.
