Long-billed Curlew at Panamá Viejo

Attendees of the Panama Audubon Society Shorebird Appreciation and Identification Workshop were treated to crippling views of an adult Long-billed Curlew at Panamá Viejo. The bird was working the mudflats near the viewing shelter halfway from the visitor center and the tower, and was pretty close to stable ground (which allowed Rafael Luck and Karl Kaufmann to blow plenty of megapixels on this noble beast). If you still need this rare (yet regular) winter visitor for your Panama list you may want to join tomorrow's PAS fieldtrip to the area.
