Pipeline Road is considered by many to be one of the top birding spots in the world. This trip will remain high on your list of “birding stories” for a long time. The Birdmobile transportation is used to go deep into the forest. Pipeline Road is the focus of many of local birding and nature tours, as it is the best place in central Panama to find forest birds. Eight species of wren, five trogons, four puffbirds, three motmots, many antbirds and even more flycatchers have been reported from the road. If the main road is not enough, there are plenty of side trails plus eleven creeks and rivers that can be followed into the forest. Army ant swarms are found frequently, attended rarely by Rufous-vented Ground-Cuckoo, and there are many manakin leks right beside the road. Pipeline Road is also a great place for raptors: all three forest-falcons are heard if not seen with ease, Tiny and Semiplumbeous Hawks and Ornate Hawk-Eagles have been reported regularly. Harpy Eagles are even occasionally seen along Pipeline Road! Come experience this one-of-a-kind birding destination! This tour is exclusive for clients staying in Canopy Tower.
