Bird life in Panamá is fantastic, I did a lot of bird watching during my trip. The highlight was the Resplendent Quetzal (Pharomachrus mocinno, german: Quetzal, french: Quetzal resplendissant) and the hummingbirds. I watched birds in the Soberania National Park, around the Mount Totumas Lodge, and around Boqutte.
