Panama Day 6: #716-726 at Metropolitan Park

Friday was our last full day in the vicinity of the Tower. We drove down into Panama City to visit Metropolitan Park, their “Central Park” though it’s much more wild than either Manhattan’s or Huntington Beach’s. We got some good birds here, and lucked into a really big mixed flock toward the end.

  1. Gray-chested Dove
  2. Yellow-crowned Parrot
  3. Forest Elaenia
  4. Lance-tailed Manakin (a Panama endemic!)
  5. Rufous-and-white Wren
  6. Red-crowned Ant-Tanager
  7. Rufous-breasted Wren
  8. White-tipped Dove
  9. Yellow-green Tyrannulet
  10. Bright-rumped Attila
  11. Orange-billed Sparrow

We also got the best looks I’ve ever had of Mourning Warbler and Kentucky Warbler, which for some reason seemed a lot less shy here than in New York. I was hoping for Little Tinamou here, but we whiffed on that. :-(
