Wednesday, we headed down to the Pacific shore, visiting the rice fields at Juan Hambron, having lunch at the beach in Santa Clara, and then checking out El Chiru. A highlight of the trip for me that day was spotting three immature Wattled Jacanas being herded to safety by their mother.

Thursday, our last full day in Panama, we took it easy since most of the group had come down with a brief illness. In the morning we headed back to Las Minas Road where we'd been rained out a few days earlier for some good birds and butterflies, and later in the afternoon to nearby Cariguana.
