Birding Panama’s Hotspots with Carlos Bethancourt – SOLD OUT

January 16 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm


This event is sold out.

We are delighted to have Carlos Bethancourt, Senior Guide, Canopy Family, as a speaker at the Sarasota Audubon Nature Center on January 16, 2020 at 5pm.

Panama is a bucket list destination for birders. Many of you have been to Panama and have stayed at the Canopy Tower or Canopy Lodge. If you have not been, you can learn about the birds, insects and reptiles of Panama from one of the most well-known and accomplished bird guides in the world.

Blessed with incredible natural beauty and biodiversity, Panama boasts over 1,000 bird species, hundreds of mammals, reptiles & amphibians, and a staggering number of butterflies, dragonflies, beetles and plant species. Carlos will take us on a photographic journey of the tropical birds, bizarre mammals, unusual reptiles & amphibians and spectacular habitats from the Canal Zone, into the foothills of western Panama, and then onto the wilds of the Darién in eastern Panama—all the favorite hotspots. From toucans to hummingbirds, mouse opossums to tongue-wielding Orange Nectar Bats, Carlos will keep you spellbound with his stories of discovery and vivid images. Panama is indeed the country of amazing natural history and a favorite destination for serious birders who want to explore some of Central America’s famous hotspots.

Space is limited to 40 participants and registration is required. Fee: $5; light refreshments will be served. To register, click here.
