A Harpy Eagle trip to Panama (11/20-11/27/2016)

I finally was able to do this after thinking about the Harpy Eagle for years. The experience did not disappoint: It was a long day trip from the Canopy Camp where we got up at 4am, took the van for about 9omin, then went on a 3 hr boat ride and finally hiked about 45min to get to the nest. We got excellent looks including fabulous photo ops.

  1. The Happy Eagle looks ominous. I would not like to meet that eagle up close. Loved the hummer and the woodpecker. Maybe I am inclined to like the avian friendly.
