You can add Homo sapiens to the list of mammal sightings ;-)

Nice addition. 18 bird species now. Any suggestions re the second opossum species? (could it be a small/young Common?)
I guess any new bird species will be difficult to add to this list, but perhaps there's some "seasonality" there?

Pouring rain at the station right now, but does not seem to be deterring the thrushes at all, they're feeding as actively as ever. The Melanerpes woodpecker (red-crowned?) is bravely trying to hold its ground against them but keeps being driven off...

EDIT: a couple of minutes on - nothing. No birds at all, that's the first time I've seen that!

At the moment a lot of activity at the feeder.
Lemon rumped, blue-grey, palm and crimson-backed tanager.
Red-legged Honeycreeper and Clay-colored Thrush

Looks like Caligo atreus to me, different than Morpho butterfly previously.

The twitter feeds shows a Black-chested jay visiting which I don't think anyone here has mentioned.

Is it because early light has faded the colours or is this a Grey Squirrel or maybe a Variegated Squirrel cheers
Harry

half an hour later the next picture shows a red looking squirrel of similar appearance except greyness
Any ideas?

Didn't see it live, but some 15 minutes ago a Grey-Necked Wood Rail was 'stomping' the feeder for a few minutes.

Here's my picture of the Squirrel and a link to their mammal list. I don't know much about Squirrels, but to me it looks most like the fifth panamanian Squirrel species, Bang's Mountain Squirrel, which doesn't feature on the list. It certainly looked different from the Red-tailed Squirrel which has just returned to the feeder at this moment

Thursday at 14:04 (Panama time), saw a Silver-throated Tanager, which I believe is new to this list.

(Astonishingly, this bird does not appear among the 409 spp. reported for the tower on eBird!)

P.C.

Very nice addition, already mentioned in the Cornell page. Note the webcam is not located on the tower but on the lodge, which is in a different part of Panama.

AH! That makes so much more sense now! I guess a few hundred metres further up does make a difference.

(Feeder was just being dominated by a small flock of Crimson-backed Tanagers a couple of minutes ago, but the Silver-throated was holding his own with them... the oropendola (P. wagleri) is back at the moment, another very nice bird.)

It is indeed! One of those tropical "dream birds".

I can't parse them all from the image; what is that bird on the left, in flight, with the white shafts in the primaries?

PC.

I think you're referring to a male Thick-billed Euphonia.

It's even better than that - you can "scroll back" through four hours' worth of buffer to replay the birds you missed, and then pause the stream! Thank goodness, because otherwise I would not have been sure about the Silver-throated Tanager ID; it was so "flighty" at first, I could not be at all sure what I was seeing. (Later, though, it returned and fed for an extended period).

Back to just thrushes on the feed table this morning. I want to be able to text somebody at the lodge, and say, "put out more bananas, your feeder is getting low!"

Lots of action among the usual suspects right now. I had a quick glimpse of a large butterfly before it left. Bright orange upperwings, very leaf-shaped underwings.

Great cam! I remember watching a good one that was in Brazil several years ago. Of course the birds were very different species-wise.
