AREA DESCRIPTION              

Book Cerro Azul

You will be birding cooler highlands at about 1,000m (3000 ft) from sea level. Transported by car from site to site, birding is done by walking through hilly and level terrains and trails narrow in places and muddy in others.

WEATHER 

The climate in Cerro Azul and Cerro Jefe  region is considerably cooler than that of the Central Panama/Canal Zone. Mornings and evenings are cooler while midday temperatures usually do not exceed the low 87s. Clouds and overcast skies frequently prevail in higher areas, leading to damp conditions.

GUIDE BOOK  RECOMMENDED  

These two books are an example of hard work put into, and for the benefit, of conserving Panama’s birds:

·   "The Birds of Panama, a field guide by George R Angehr and Robert Dean Can be described as the “bible” for

Panama and some Costa Rica birds. First published 2010 .This excellent field

guide is highly recommended as your primary reference book on the birds.

·  “An Illustrated Field Guide to the Birds of Panama” by Ernesto Ponce and Giselle Muschett, 2006, 1st Edition. It can be described as “a descriptive fieldwork tool” for fast information .

 

BIRDS TO LOOK FOR 

 This is a listing of birds we have seen on different tours along Cerro Azul, Cerro Jefe and surrounding areas , and some additions from friends, guess and people who have collaborated sharing with us their sightings. The list is continuously on the move. Feel free to send your findings and comments to info@birdingbyboattour.com
