Panama is one of the favorite destinations for birding, but birding in Panama is not complete unless you visit the Boquete highlands. As suggested in Robert S. Ridgley’s “A Guide to The Birds of Panama”, Finca Lerida is a place to go “searching for quetzals and other specialties”. A unique collection of over 1600 bird specimens collected in the vicinity of Lerida by its previous owner Mr. Tollef B. Monniche was donated to the Birds Department of Zoology in the Field Museum in Chicago. Finca Lerida has a network of professionally built trails which have been visited by birdwatchers looking to see the Resplendent Quetzal, and by those interested in the magnificent flora and fauna within the estate grounds. Finca Lerida is home to over 300 species of birds. Cesar Caballero, our guide, easily identifies their calls and songs.
