  1. Spectacled Owl

    Spectacled Owl

    Juvenile bird to the right, and less obvious the back of an adult to the left.
  2. Crested Caracara

    Crested Caracara

    Subspecies cheriway. This is an immature bird, look at the streaked rather than barred upper breast, and the pinkish bare skin at base of the bill.
  3. Hoffman's Two-toed Sloth

    Hoffman's Two-toed Sloth

    "Ahhh, it is good to be scratched right there, I am just going to close my eyes and enjoy ..." I also uploaded a short video of this animal.
  4. Hoffman's Two-toed Sloth scratching

    Hoffman's Two-toed Sloth scratching

    They seem to be spending a lot of time doing that! This animal was hanging by the right side limbs and using both of the left interchangeably to scratch.
  5. Staring Contest

    Staring Contest

    I saw these two birds at a large distance, a Crested Oropendola and a Black-chested Jay. They were, as far as I know, not in touching distance at any time, but eventually, the oropendola took over the top seat and the jay disappeared.
  6. White-vented Plumeleteer

    White-vented Plumeleteer

    I could have chosen to show a portrait here, but I liked the yellow colors in lower left as a contrast to the green of the bird.
  7. Common Tody-Flycatcher juvenile

    Common Tody-Flycatcher juvenile

    Another bird from right outside our balcony. I strongly believe this is a juvenile based on gape, buffy tint to wing markings, and overall grayness. Subspecies wetmorei.
  8. Yellow-crowned Euphonia

    Yellow-crowned Euphonia

    Outside our balcony was a tall bush/little tree with some nice birds.
  9. The frontal view

    The frontal view

    Scale-crested Pygmy Tyrant - This is subspecies luteiventris. Unfortunately, I am yet to see this species with the crest raised.
  10. The back side view

    The back side view

    Scale-crested Pygmy Tyrant - I am uploading the frontal view in a minute. This is subspecies luteiventris
  11. Black-crowned Antpitta singing

    Black-crowned Antpitta singing

    A singing bird near El Valle de Anton, Cocle, Panama. There is another sound near the end, I am not sure if that is human generated or what.
  12. Black-crowned Antpitta

    Black-crowned Antpitta

    This bird stood around for a long time singing its heart out.
  13. Yellow-billed Cacique

    Yellow-billed Cacique

  14. Keel-billed Toucan

    Keel-billed Toucan

    It looks like it's about to fly off, but it sat like that for a while
  15. Rufous-and-white Wren

    Rufous-and-white Wren

    Subspecies castanonotus, immature bird
  16. Ameiva lizard

    Ameiva lizard

    Pretty sure this lizard belongs to the genus Ameiva but do not know which species.
  17. Northern Scrub Flycatcher

    Northern Scrub Flycatcher

  18. Golden-fronted Greenlet

    Golden-fronted Greenlet

    My second upload of this species today. I believe this was a second bird, who did not want to show its head. There are few enough images in the gallery that I felt both were warranted.
  19. Golden-fronted Greenlet

    Golden-fronted Greenlet

    Unfortunately, this bird did not want to sit where it wasn't covered by leaves etc.
  20. Dusky-capped Flycatcher

    Dusky-capped Flycatcher

    Presumably subspecies M. t. nigricapillus
  21. Savanna Hawk

    Savanna Hawk

    This bird did not want to turn its head and look in our direction. I guess the possibility of prey in that direction was more important than the guys observing it from this direction.
  22. Orange-chinned Parakeet

    Orange-chinned Parakeet

    Seen a number of times on this trip but not closer than this
  23. Striped Cuckoo

    Striped Cuckoo

    It sat there for quite a while singing its heart out.
  24. Lineated Woodpecker

    Lineated Woodpecker

    I like the way the chin looks on this bird.
  25. Long-billed Starthroat

    Long-billed Starthroat

    Back at the lodge after a long day, this one enticed to a pre-dinner photo.
