14 - 22 March 2007
by Barry Cooper and Gail Mackiernan
With our miserable cold Maryland winter extending well into March, we decided to on a getaway to some place warm. where we could see lots of birds. Having had a very enjoyable experience at the Panama Canopy Tower in 2002 we decided this time to visit the new Canopy Lodge for seven days, with a single day at the Canopy Tower. (The latter would be to target some species being seen along the Pipeline Road, specifically Rufous-vented Ground-Cuckoo.)
Both lodges are owned by Raul Arias de Para. The Canopy Lodge is a new, very luxurious facility on the outskirts of El Valle deAncon, and has habitat nearby (highland forest and lowland dry forest) not found near the Tower. We, along with friend Sally Wechsler, arrived in the morning at Panama City International Airport, and were met by a van from the Lodge. It is about a 1 1/2 to two-hour drive from the city to the rural and beautiful Ancon Valley. The small town is a favored vacation and outing spot for Panamanians and, increasingly, visitors from the USA.
Our accommodations at the Lodge, with king-sized beds, decorations of local handicrafts, and balconies overlooking the river, were wonderful. It should be mentioned that we missed Brad and Angelina (really ) by a couple of days, a tribute to the secluded ambiance of this lovely hotel. The grounds contain many flowering trees and shrubs, numerous hummingbird feeders, and fruits feeders in front of the main dining area that attracted a wide variety of species. As we left, Raul had started construction of a small wetland to further enhance the lodge’s natural environment.
The guides at both facilities are excellent. At the Lodge we had (at different times) Danilo Rodriguez and Tino Sanchez, while at the Tower we went out with Carlos Bethancourt – the latter excursion specifically targeting the Rufous-vented Ground-cuckoo.
From the Lodge, we made day visits to a number of good local sites, including La Mesa (fragmented but still productive forest), Altos de Maria (highland forest), and El Chiru (lowland dry forest and scrub). One unexpected downside was the weather, as March appears to be a very windy month and we struggled with wind (and some rain) most days. A January visit, which had been our original plan (postponed by a family emergency) might be better. Also, some species were not as vocal in March as earlier in the year – unfortunately this included the Black-crownedAntpitta.
Another downer was that Altos de Maria, THE premier spot for the Antpitta and many other top birds, is being slowly and methodically degraded for an upscale housing development. Raul told us that 60% of the buyers are from North America. I wonder how many of them would like it that virgin cloud forest is being cut up to build their little vacation homes? The worst thing is that there is absolutely no attempt to use environmentally sensitive construction means. There is a total lack of basic sediment control and so whole hillsides, stripped of their forest cover, are washing away, and slash and dirt is being bulldozed into streams which (used to) be home for the endangered Golden Frog. The future of birding at Altos appears bleak unless these sorts of construction practices can be halted. However, at the time of our visit there was still a good selection of quality birds including Black-crowned Antpitta [seen by a bird group the same week as our visit].
Departed Baltimore Washington International Airport at 6.00 a.m. and
arrived Panama International Airport at 1.30 p.m.[via a connecting
flight in Houston]. We were picked-up at the airport by and driven the
approximately 2 1/2 hours to the Canopy Lodge. This allowed us some
late afternoon birding on the Lodge’s grounds including time watching
the numerous hummingbirds, tanagers and other species at the feeders.
Morning hike along the Waterfall Trail, which starts across the
bridge from the Lodge’s restaurant.. In the afternoon we drove a short
distance to some dry forest just outside the local town of El Valle.
Good birds seen were Striped Cuckoo which was whistled-in by our guide
a gave brilliant views. Also brief views of the Tody Motmot at
its stakeout site.
In morning a short drive to some productive forest fragments at La
Mesa. Afternoon we birded the lower portion of the Cerro de Gaital
Trail. The top birds seen today were the White-tipped Sicklebill and
Drove about one hour to Altos de Maria and spent the day at this
site. A slow day with the only real standout species being a superb
pair of Barred Hawks..
Visited the La Mesa area, driving down to Rio Indio. In the
afternoon birded the La Zamia Trail, which was exceptionally quiet.
Good birds today included Black Hawk-Eagle, a second White-tipped
Sicklebill and our only White-throated Thrush of the trip.
BC and SW visited the dry forests and cattle pastures at El Chiru
and GM birded the Waterfall Trail and La Mesa. Good birds seen today
were Lesser Yellow-headed Vulture, great views of eight Crested
Bobwhites, two Sapphire-throated Hummingbirds and our only Panama
Flycatchers and Black-faced Grosbeaks of the trip.
Two-thirds of the day at Altos de Maria, which was far livelier than
before, followed by birding the trail behind the Canopy
Adventure. Good birds seen included a group of displaying Yellow-eared
Toucanets, two Sunbitterns, Tody Motmot, and Brown-billed Scythebill.
Morning spent along the Cerro de Gaital Trail, doing the entire loop
in intermittent rain. This was followed by the two hour drive to the
Canopy Tower with late afternoon birding around the Tower and partway
down the Semaphore Hill Road. Great looks at Spotted Antbird was
Almost the whole day spent along the Pipeline Road followed by late
afternoon visit to the Summit Ponds and to the stakeout roosting site
of a Great Potoo. A very memorable day with
tremendous birding at a large army antswarm along the Pipeline Road.
The swarm covered a large area on either side of the first stream
crossing. Easily the top bird of he trip was an obliging Rufous-vented
Ground-Cuckoo. Other great birds at this antswarm were two Ocellated
Antbirds, large numbers of Spotted and Bicolored Antbirds plus
Chestnut-backed Antbird. Large numbers of Ruddy Woodcreepers and
Gray-headed Tanagers were also in attendance. In addition to this we
had mind-blowing views of Streaked-chested [Spectacled] Antpitta, an
adult King Vulture, our fourth White Hawk of the trip, Black Hawk-Eagle
and Great Potoo. This brilliant day’s birding made up for the sometimes
difficult experience at El Valle where we struggled at times with
strong gusty winds.
We saw 233 species with a rather high 14 species heard-only.
The following species were relatively common and widespread and see virtually every day in appropriate habitat:
Cattle Egret, Black Vulture, Turkey Vulture, Ruddy Ground Dove, White-tipped Dove, Rock Pigeon, Orange-chinned Parakeet, Rufous-tailed Hummingbird, Social Flycatcher, Dusky-capped Flycatcher,, Tropical Kingbird, Southern Rough-winged Swallow, House Wren, Clay-colored Thrush, Thick-billed Euphonia, Blue-gray Tanager, Variable Seedeater, Yellow-faced Grassquit.

Without doubt this was the top bird of the trip. This individual was seen in the forest interior along the Pipeline Road and was associating with a large ant swarm, which had attracted many ant birds, woodcreepers and tanagers. Watched for several minutes before it finally stalked off through the undergrowth. (There may have been two birds as later we heard bill-clapping from a thicket behind us and not in the direction the first bird had disappeared.) Absolutely superb.

Several heard calling and mind-blowing views obtained of a single bird along the Pipeline Road, just a few feet away from us calling continually.
Regrettably, heard calling only at Altos de Maria despite a major effort over two days to see this spectacular species.
