This post includes pictures of birds that regularly came to the feeder at the Canopy Family Lodge in Panama and is part of a travelogue of our birding trip to Panama. If you would like to go to Part 1 of the travelogue (which includes pictures of the places we went, birds we saw, and some of the mammals we observed) CLICK HERE.
Bananaquits are common birds in the Caribbean and Central America. This one we saw regularly at the feeder.
The Streaked Flycatcher below was also seen on and around the feeder. It was one of the largest birds seen there.
If you look for the eye of this Broad-billed Motmot you won’t find it. According to our local guide Carlos the bird lost the eye several years ago and wasn’t expected to survive. Obviously it has, probably with the help of the food left by the feeders (cooked rice in this case)
This Red-crowned Ant-tanager was only seen once at the feeders and I was lucky enough to get a picture of it.
Although it wasn’t a Lifer, the Buff-throated Saltator was a great bird to see on the Canopy Lodge feeders.
Bananas and oranges were hung from wires for the birds. In this case a Red-crowned Woodpecker worked on a banana.
This Dusky-faced Tanager appeared for just a split second before it split.
This Black-chested Jay was one of about 6 that banded together in the trees around the Canopy Lodge. Although they rarely were seen at the feeder, this one came down for some cooked rice.
The Gray-headed Chachalaca was a regular visitor to the feeder at the Canopy Lodge. Two of them usually dominated the area.
