With easy and very bird-friendly lodging at the unique Canopy Tower Lodge, birding in the rich protected forests along the Panama Canal is a real treat. Pipeline, Gamboa and Achiote Roads produce huge lists of antbirds, tanagers, barbets and trogons and time spent birding anywhere in these protected forests is well spent.
