Smart birds those Evening Grosbeaks John, unusual plumage to say the least and their faces remind me so much of a Hawfinch.
Yeah last one was 1980 Highland.

The Reds versus The Yellows in Ontario with a Redpoll as ref.

About time we had another Evening Grosbeak in Britain, just looked it up and it's getting on for 40 years since the last one. (I'd settle for a Pine Grosbeak though).

Cheers John

RE: Webcam in Panama


Worth a quick scan when I got in as I think this could be a Tennessee Warbler, correct me if it's not. I'm not the best on tropical Birds.

Rob,
The female Red - crowned Woodpecker I had seen several times,
But this was the first male I have seen.
Yes we got the power outage yesterday and about 1.30pm out there today we got loud off stage talking, with laughter, that flushed everything for sometime.
So I could get some work done.

Keith there was 2 (presumably a pair?) at 14.41 hrs Panama time, roughly 2 hours ago. Glad to see the live feed back on, there was an unexpected power cut yesterday.

Tough one Ian, especially from one image where only one position of the bird is depicted.
Mottled-cheeked Tyrannulet perhaps, or what about female Blackpoll Warbler?

The rusty bird right of the Honeycreeper looks a good fit for Red-crowned Ant-Tanager.

Cheers,

Yesterday...

Panama feeder.
- a pair of Collared Aracari's (Toucans)
- Chestnut-headed Oropendola again
- Green Honeycreeper again
- Variegated and Red-tailed Squirrel
...and in the image from Thursday, there's a whole menagerie of birds but what is the rusty coloured bird on the right of the Honeycreeper?

Cornell New York feeders.
- Red-bellied Woodpecker
- Blue Jay

Ontario feeders.
- 2 Evening Grosbeak
- Pine Grosbeak

If you look carefully the Evening Grosbeak has a similar face and bill structure to a Hawfinch

Could well be Coati then.

Forgot to mention I saw a Barred Antshrike the other day and the Motmot put in another appearance.

Martin, I think that night feeding animal is a Common Opossum. Was this it?

It's probably a 2nd winter Herring Euphonia Mike, I can't separate them either!

Euphonias  - even in the field its necessary to really get ones eye in to sort out these teasers. Its hard to see if the bird in the shot has yellow into the chin and throat or a solid dark blue throat and breast. It does show a restricted yellow fore crown possibly not extending back beyond the eye, and a more golden tone to the underparts, so another possibility would be Fulvous- vented Euphonia? (Race in Panama would be fulvicrissa).

Cheers,

Mike P.

It is a Varigated Squirrel John, an absolute belter.
The Red-tailed Squirrel was a corker too but it could be worth looking out for these Mammals as there are a few even rarer Squirrels that live in Panama and fairly little is known about them.
The Western and the Central American Dwarf Squirrel, and Bang's Mountain Squirrel which doesn't look too much unlike a Red-tailed Squirrel.

A different squirrel on the feeders a moment ago. I think it is Variegated Squirrel.

Since I was a kid I never really got my head round why some Americans say Possum when the true American Mammal is an Opossum. To me, the Possum is a totally different Mammal of Australia and the only link is they are both Marsupial, not related as far as I know.
Pretty sure Possums in Australia were called that after Opossums were first named.

Here we go again!

Another hour has just vanished watching this Panama cam. A Clay-coloured Thrush made an appearance along with a Tree Squirrel (Red-tailed Squirrel).

There's another live camera on feeders in Ontario, and an absolute belter on feeders in Cornell Lab's backyard in Sapsucker Woods, Ithaca, New York State.

Just had these on the feeders, they look like...
- Downy Woodpecker (male)
- House Finch (male)
- and what could be just immature Goldfinches
(and not what I was debating as being Pine Siskins??)

CAN'T THEY FIX ONE UP ON A GULL ROOST SOMEWHERE?
wink

You're right about it being addictive John, I tried it yesterday and before I knew it half hour had passed.

This takes me back. Nearly as good as the real thing. First 'good' bird almost straight away (and I remembered what it was!), grey-necked wood rail. A superb looking thing.

Cornell University have set up a HD webcam on a bird feeder at Canopy Lodge in Panama. https://youtu.be/hHX9l2cvw-E
It is live feed although it is also possible to rewind 4 hours to see what you have missed.

The species I have seen so far are:

Grey-headed Chachalaca
Collared Aricari
Red-crowned Woodpecker
Clay-coloured Thrush
Buff-throated Saltator
Dusky-faced Tanager
Palm Tanager
Blue-grey Tanager
Lemon-rumped Tanager
Thick-billed Euphonia

Also:
Red-tailed Squirrel
Common Opossum

Warning! It can become quite addictive.

Cheers John
