Cocoi Heron at Summit Ponds

The Panama Audubon fieldtrip to Plantation Road made a quick stop at Summit Ponds to beef up the birdlist. The best among the numerous additions was an adult Cocoi Heron seen on the far side of the left pond. This Eastern Panama specialty is only rarely seen in the Canal Area, with a few sightings from the Chagres River/Gamboa Resort area (fide Carlos Bethancourt).
