The drive from Canopy Tower to Canopy Lodge was beautiful and the scenery certainly made the drive seem much shorter than two hours. As we pulling into Canopy Lodge, we were greeted by our guide and friend Eliecer. Although lunch was ready for us, we did stop to look at a few birds along the way and picked up a few lifers!

|This is the main building at Canopy Lodge. It's a wonderful place to sit and watch many birds!|
|The rooms at Canopy Lodge are huge and very comfortable!|
Over the next few days, we birded at a wide variety of elevations from the beach all the way up to the cloud forests. We had 203 species during our 3.5 days of birding at the Canopy Lodge including 29 lifers for me!
Here are a few of our favorite photos from our time at Canopy Lodge. Photography was a little difficult here since we had cloudy weather for most of our trip.
|Barred Antshrikes were very common in many of the birding areas that we visited.|
|While birding in the Pacific Lowlands, we found a huge group of|
Fork-tailed Flycatchers! I think we could have spent all day photographing them.
|Rufous Motmots are regularly seen around the Canopy|
Lodge property. This photo was take from our room's deck.
|Rufous-capped Warblers are one of the most common species in this area.|
|One of the target species when birding in the Pacific Lowlands is the Yellow-crowned|
Parrot. Luckily, several of them perched and gave us great scope views!
|Another target in the lowlands is Yellow-headed Vulture. Several|
of them passed low overhead while we were birding in this area.
