Alexander Wetmore - Photo Album, Panama, 1949

About the Project

Head off on an adventure through Panama with the Smithsonian's 1949 research team, led by ornithologist and Secretary Alexander Wetmore and National Museum of Natural History taxidermist Watson M. Perrygo. Wetmore and Perrygo traveled to Panama annually throughout the late 1940s-1950s to observe and collect birds.

Join the expedition and visit local villages, collect specimens in the forest, and take a plane ride over the Rio Bayano! Help other volunteers transcribe the image captions from this exciting trip.
