The bird-watching paradise of “Pipeline Road” is located in the Soberania National Park, 30 minutes from Panama City
Birdwatching or birding is the observation of birds as a recreational activity. It can be done with the naked eye, through a visual enhancement device like binoculars and telescopes, or by listening for bird sounds.
Birdwatching often involves a significant auditory component, as many bird species are more easily detected and identified by ear than by eye. Most birdwatchers pursue this activity for recreational or social reasons, unlike ornithologists, who engage in the study of birds using formal scientific methods.
The bird-watching paradise of "Pipeline Road" is located in the Soberania National Park, 30 minutes from Panama City. Approx. 385 bird species have been counted here, including 8 species of wrens, 5 trogons, 4 puff birds, 3 marmots & many ant birds!
More flycatchers have been reportedly seen on the road, and if 17 Kms. are not enough, there are a great amount of rails, more than eleven rivulets and rivers inside the forest. Pipeline Road is also a good place for the raptor birds: the 3 hawks of the forest have been seen with lots of difficulties.
