|Panama is a country of great contrasts. No other country of comparable size can match its astonishing variety of habitats including lowland and montane rainforests fields, vast wetlands, arid scrubs, and volcanic peaks, and even high-mountain paramo zone. Panama's bird life is remarkable, with birds found from both Central and South America. A highlight would be the chance to see the majestic Harpy Eagle and the Resplendent Quetzal - among the continent's great rarities. Panama boasts a national bird list of over 976 species, in a country roughly the size of South Carolina, Panama has more species than those found in Canada and the USA combined !
