Looked back a few hours and saw this small fellow that at first looked almost like Phylloscopus warbler. Has rather prominent supercilium and brighter green rump/lower back area - could it be a Tennessee Warbler?

Well spotted! Yes, I think Tennessee Warbler is correct

I was also checking back and the GH is also visible at 11:55 and 14:36.
It seems a higher than usual diversity was present at the feeder today, with multiple visits by the oropendola, the jay, aracaris, 6-7 species of tanager, euphonias, etc...

The last hour or so has had a great test for remembering almost all of the common birds and some others too. I have not seen such a variety to keep me watching that long, and harly a gray colored thrush amongst them
also at camera time 15.47 a squirrell, different to the other two species I have seen.

Yes, just wanted to say the same about diversity at the feeder today! Very fun to watch!

And few minutes ago also what looks like a Variegated Squirrel (Sciurus variegatoides)!

I was watching the squirrel as well. Looks very different. Does anyone know which species?

Wow! That antshrike is spectacular! I'll have to make a more concerted effort to watch. Looks like my chance to "strike it rich" is better than ever.

Nicely done with the Tennessee Warbler, too. My lifer Tennessee spent the better part of the morning a couple autumns ago in my yard. Mind you, my yard is just a half acre in a dog-filled neighborhood, and most of the yard is lawn. The warbler favored a small patch of weeds just a few square feet in area. Then it flew into a small ornamental cherry tree beneath my bedroom window. It's not every day that you get to look down on a Tennessee Warbler!

Rant over. Hope something good is on the Panama feeders tomorrow.

I haven't seen the image, but when I was at the lodge in November Snowy-bellied Hummingbird was often in those flowers and perched in the tree directly above. I also saw Rufous-tailed Hummingbird, Green Hermit and Long-billed Starthroat from the veranda.

Would this be a female red-legged honeycreeper? Sorry it's not the greatest capture.

Potentially an immature (? or non-breeding?) male. I can't see the wings properly, but they should be the same colour as the mantle in females and darker in males. Agree on species.

Immature/female Red-Legged Honeycreeper is a nice catch!

Looks like this day was a bit quieter with mostly usual suspects visiting the feeder. Highlights for me were Silver-Throated Tanager on and off several times and Green Honeycreeper today was accompanied by a female.

Not a bad day at all. 3 tanager species, plenty of euphonias, and my "Panama cam first" Green Honeycreeper and Chestnut-headed Oropendola!

Just jealous, I had to work today so missed most of it, but hey, the Barred Antshrike, and the Variegated Squirrel yesterday were cool.
Whenever I have dipped in today there's been Gray or Clay in the names.

finally connected with the black-chested jay just as the light was going yesterday.
Also, what is this little green bird, please? Must be one we've had but I'm confused!

Green bird should be female Thick-billed Euphonia I believe.

Thanks. I saw another one that looked like a watered down version of the male (green but with a yellow headcap) but perhaps it was an immature male.
There must have been around 20 species of birds identified by now. Several opossum sightings last night, too - common I think.

I think I finally spotted the silver-throated tanager. And the immature male thick-billed euphonia.
Have we had the black-capped blue one before?... i see it's a green honeycreeper, so the answer is 'yes'. (It looks blue to me!)
