This is a post that includes pictures of birds that we saw in the private backyard of the Rodriguez family. They set up banana slices, rice, and orange slices when we arrived and soon a wide variety of birds appeared. This is part of a travelogue of our birding trip to Panama.

Summer Tanagers are often found in the midwest during the summer months. Here is one during March getting fed in preparation to flying north.
his White-lined Tanager visited the Rodriguez family feeders for a bite of banana. The white line is barely noticeable beneath its wing.
This Plain-colored Tanager came to feed on the banana slices placed by the Rodriguez family on branches of a bush. This type of tanager was not seen very often on our trip so we were lucky to spot it here.
