Episode #24 of the This Birding Life podcast is ready for your listening and viewing pleasure at Podcast Central on the Bird Watcher's Digest website. In this episode we travel to Panama on the Panama La Verde Birding Circuit where I interviewed the folks behind Panama La Verde, as well as four of my fellow birding travelers.

Our fam trip group in Cerro Azul.

If you'd like some back story about the trip, you can see a handful of BOTB posts on Panama here, here, here, and over here too. And here.

If you'd rather ingest a bit of poetry that came to me while birding on this isthmus between Central and South America, then hie thee to this link about the view from Cerro Azul.

For more general information about birding spots in Panama, see the "Far Afield" article in the Jan/Feb 2010 issue of Bird Watcher's Digest (now mailing from the printer), and on the BWD website under the "Watch Our Website" links at the bottom of the homepage.

Hope you enjoy the new episode of TBL. Let me know (good, bad, indifferent, constructive criticism) if the spirit moves you.


See you out there with the birds!

Maybe it's because I know the back story, and I know and love all the voices I'm hearing, but the last bit of this podcast had tears of laughter rolling down my cheeks as Jeff Gordon and Lisa White tried to stop the juggernaut that is BT3 as it rolled, microphone in hand, toward poor Mike Freiberg. Egad it's hilarious.

And a mighty nice firethroat photo, too.
