300 Bird Species near Santa Fe!
I spent last weekend checking and cross-checking bird species for the Santa Fe region in Panama to compile a list of totaling 300 species found in this region (!). This list represents a compilation of a variety of records, from the Smithsonian, Panama Audubon Society and online trip records.
I’d be willing to add or subtract and would love to hear from birders out there.
A Note on Scientific Names
There were times that the Smithsonian’s Scientific Name used was different than the Panama Audubon Society’s. This happens with species over time as someone decides that one species is actually a type of another genus. In this case, I did not research each discrepancy- I went with the Smithsonian’s naming conventions.
