"Fighting Owls" Invade Wetlands

Late last month, Cindy and I volunteered for a morning with Panama Audubon Society.  We aimed our scopes at the birds of Costa del Este for the benefit of students.  More than 70 youngsters of the Inter-American Academy participated in an educational seminar on the importance of the wetlands in the Bay of Panama. Rosabel Miró, executive director of PAS, guided the event and has a real knack for engaging young minds.  Her talk and walk let them experience the benefits of the mangroves and mudflats and highlighted many of the threats to coastal ecosystems. We all admired the flora and fauna of the place.

See the "Fighting Owls" in action in the short video.
