Jabirú in Chiriquí Grande, a report by Natalia Decastro

On the morning of October 10th, during a birding trip to the Bocas del Toro mainland, with a group based at Tranquilo Bay Eco Adventure Lodge, we observed a Jabiru (Jabiru mycteria) in the Chiriqui Grande area.

That same day we observed a hawk migration, several thousands of Broad-winged Hawks (Buteo platipterus) and Swainson’s Hawks (Buteo swainsoni) and a few hundred Turkey Vultures (Cathartes aura).
