Enjoy nature’s gifts of birds and other wildlife in Panama with some species or their cousins that occur in the Yucatan.
By the way, many times on birding trips in the Yucatan, I heard the mournful song of a Great Tinamou, but never saw one until I took the trip to Panama. This bird walked across the road in front of me and I took a few images. Look and listen to this secretive, forest bird.
