Got myself a nice little sunburn while visiting the Santa Clara Beach last weekend, so next time I will take some stronger sun protecting lotion along, almost forgot how strong the sun is around there, and while that great ocean breeze cools you off you don’t feel the sun as much until its to late. Santa Clara Beach is about 110 kilometers from Panama City on the Pacific Coast, its a great place to relax, to enjoy the beach, go for a swim but also to watch the great variety of birds around the area. From the always present pelicans to the majestic flight of the frigate birds and many wading bird species to the king fisher and some hawks, plus many herons. I have seen even some blue crowned motmots in the area in the past aldo not this time. Attached are a few images from last weekend.
