Bird Watching Panama

Antbird Tours offers educational birding trips throughout Panama. The immersive nature of their tours ensures that clients will get far more than a cursory understanding of the tropics. While focusing primarily on birds, lessons on biodiversity, evolution, natural history and tropical habitat conservation will serve to give clients a well-rounded education in tropical ecology.

Antbird Tours was founded by a professional ornithologist with a passion for the country of Panama. After completing a PhD in ornithology and spending years travelling and working throughout the tropics, the avian diversity of Panama stood out as unparalleled. The cultural history, the current state of conservation and beautiful people of the country only serve to strengthen it as a prime destination for study in tropical nature.

Antbird Tours offers excursions into multiple regions of the country and a “grand tour” that offers a chance to see a cross-section of the entire country. At each location, clients stay at comfortable lodges and enjoy an all-inclusive experience as they are led through national park systems and private reserves by the owner and operator of the company. For every bird encountered, a full life history will be provided that includes their behaviour, plumage characteristics and co-evolution alongside the other birds, plants and animals within the ecosystem. At the end of the excursion, clients will not only have a significant species list but will also possess a working knowledge of ecology and evolution of birds in the tropics.

Antbird Tours is also happy to offer custom tours within Panama. Simply contact them with your desired length of stay and interests and they will provide you with an all-inclusive custom itinerary.

Antbird Tours firmly believes in the “power of one” and their trips are designed to provide you with an amazing experience within Panama, an impressive species list and an extensive understanding of how you can contribute to the conservation of tropical birds and habitats once you return home. Let Antbird Tours show you what is so magical about Panama.

With this mindset, grassroots conservation efforts can take hold and make a difference from within the country.
