Counting Raptors at Cerro Ancón
For the fourth year in a row, the Panama Audubon Society is holding its Raptors Ocean to Ocean count from Cerro Ancón. Last Thursday, October 23, they counted 158,766 migratory raptors, of which 106,659 were Swainson's Hawks. It so happens that October 23 seems to always be the date when we get the highest numbers, so mark your calendars for 2009.
The results of previous counts are available on the Publications section of the Panama Audubon Society website.
