According to Wikipedia there are 978 bird species recorded in Panama. The avifauna of Panama includes a total of 978 (Angehr & Dean) species, of which 12 are endemic, 6 have been introduced by humans, and 120 are rare or accidental. 20 species are globally threatened. The total figure includes a number of species whose occurrence in the country is considered hypothetical: no specimen or photograph has been taken in the country and they are known only from sight records.
At my house above Boquete, I see beautiful birds every day. There are hundreds of hummingbirds, tanagers of all different colors, and an occasional flock of very noisy green parrots. I don’t usually get my camera out… but I know I should.. especially when I see something as beautiful as the bird in the photo below.
Sometimes birds fly in to the windows above my front door. I think they see the clouds reflection in the window and think it is sky. Usually, the birds are just knocked unconscious for a few minutes. Sometimes they hit the window so hard they don’t make it. I sat this one on a branch on a cedar tree. Twenty minutes later he/she was gone so I knew this one made it!
