Tufted Saxifrage is a small perennial that grow in thick mats on the tundra. This photo was taken by Dave Milsom at L’Anse Amour just a few days ago, during our Newfoundland and Labrador trip. “Saxifraga” is the Latin word for “rock breaker”.

The  Agami Heron is a reclusive species and is rarely seen, preferring the shade and overhanging vegetation. That’s why we were so enthralled by this gorgeous photograph by Corey Finger on the excellent birding blog 10,000 Birds. This was taken during a 2009 visit to the Cuero y Salado Wildlife Refuge, a major wetland and mangrove lagoon in Honduras. Audubon Nature Odysseys will pay a visit here in February 2014 as part of our expedition to Honduras, Guatemala and Belize.

We’ve returned from our adventures at the Canopy Tower in Panama. The birding was beyond fantastic, the food was delicious, and our local guide Carlos Bethancourt was one of the best we’ve ever encountered. Rich Merritt, our always awesome Audubon leader, shared with us his photographs of the experience. We are already making plans to return next year, so stay tuned!
