Join Lathe Claflin for a program on a recent trip to eastern Panama organized by former Washtenaw Audubon member Matt Hysell. With over 250 species seen, rarities included Crested Eagle, Harpy Eagle, and Streaked Xenops. Lathe Claflin is a retired U-M professor who has led many field trips for Jackson Audubon, Washtenaw Audubon, Whitefish Point Bird Observatory, and the Haehnle Audubon Sanctuary in Jackson County.
