Birding – Rambala Jungle Lodge is the perfect place for birders, with meandering trails offering prime bird-spotting and watching sites. We have seasonal raptor migrations that are so dense they blot out the sky as well as many common birds including Keel-billed Toucans and Oropendolas, plus a variety of rarer finds such as the Sunbittern, masked tityra and so many more. Even the less active birder will be sure to spot some interesting species from their private porch or from the Lodge. Learn about all the wonderful birds of the Caribbean in Panama.
