2014 Panamanian Pondering

Yes. I have got the Tropics on my mind.  I’m already thinking about cold weather and winter and that white stuff on the ground.  And if you live in the Great Lakes Region like I do you already know that late January can be wicked cold.  In fact, the third week of January is often one of the coldest periods of the year.  The deep freeze of winter temperatures bare their teeth in January.  This is part of the genius of the timing of the 2014 Panama Canal Zone and Pipeline Road Birding with Greg Miller coordinated by Wildside Nature Tours.  The dates in 2014 are January 18-25.  Perfect.  And did I mention the birds?  OH.  MY.  GOSH.
