    Anyone else got a plan a and plan b trip?

    I didn't realize that negative covid tests were needed to travel between islands...I guess I figured as long as you were coming from the States it would be fine, since It's not like there are checkpoints at state borders to check for COVID. That's unfortunate you got skunked on Kauai, but I...

    Anyone else got a plan a and plan b trip?

    Yeah Texas has been really good this year, as has South Florida. I would have loved to have made it down, but unfortunately my #2 vaccine shot is in the middle of Spring Break. I've seen Audubon's Oriole and Crimson-collared Grosbeak down there, but everything else on your list would be a lifer...

    Curious what your targets are? I need another trip down that way to grab the few I have left.

    The one nice thing about the tower is...well the tower. That should give you easy access to some birds that might be difficult otherwise, although I guess the discovery center has something equivalent

    Anyone else got a plan a and plan b trip?

    Before the pandemic hit, I had booked a birding package deal with the canopy tower, for 7 nights at the tower and 3 nights at Canopy Lodge. It's currently been rebooked for May 23. It's basically all inclusive, but we will be hitting up all the hotspots in the canal (Pipeline, Gamboa road...

    Anyone else got a plan a and plan b trip?

    Provisionally my thoughts are to probably break up Hawaii into two separate trips, rather than cramming everything into one. That way I have some flexibility if I get skunked or need to shift my itinerary. First trip would probably focus on Oahu and the Big Island, the second trip on Kauai and...

    Thankfully I only paid $13 bucks more, but yeah, I am glad I didn't procrastinate on my purchase.

    Anyone else got a plan a and plan b trip?

    FYI, for those planning there future trips, based on chatting with an American Airlines rep yesterday while booking my flights, reservations are rapidly going up, at least for that company. I suspect costs might soon start going up for international flights, because we are pretty soon going to...

    Thanks! Will you do be doing a report in the trip report forum?

    So I am rolling the dice and just booked my Panama trip for the end of May. Hopefully I will be vaccinated by then, and hoping some of the travel restrictions might loosen just a little.

    Anyone else got a plan a and plan b trip?

    if you ebird, I would be greatly appreciative to hear your itinerary. Hawaii has been an absolute nightmare to fantasy bird for the ABA area game thanks to COVID :P Plus, hoping to go in person sometime in the next 3 years, so I am curious how you will fare since I assume you are doing this...

    Anyone else got a plan a and plan b trip?

    I suppose my fall back plan if I can't go to Panama this summer (besides crying?) would be SE Arizona, since interstate travel isn't closed and I will feel comfortable about airports as long as I have the vaccine. Either that or Maine: Both locations would help me fill holes in my ABA list.
