Great Jacamar - Jacamerops aureus - Jacamar grande
My wife and I spent December 27, 2015 to January 16, 2016 in Panama. We stayed at three locations - the Canopy Tower along the canal, the Canopy Lodge in the foothills to the west and then the Canopy Camp near the end of the Pan-American Highway in Panama's eastern Darien Province. All of part of the Canopy Family and we had a wonderful time, delicious food, comfortable rooms and a great deal of wildlife to view and photograph.
This image of a Great Jacamar was obtained on our last day. We detoured from the return to Panama City for our flight home to stop in at the San Francisco Nature Reserve, an area of protected forest near Torti along the Pan-American highway.
