I was going to say that every time I look at the live feed, it's always clay-colored thrushes. But just now, three collared aracaris is a nice change!

possibly Red-tailed Squirrel (Sciurus granatensis) colour tail of other Panamanian sqirrels look wrong to me, or very significant rarity, such as 'only four left'...

Yes, extremely variable throughout the day. There was a "free for all" moment just seconds ago with the following species all together on the feeding table:
Rufous Motmot
Clay-coloured Thrush
Buff-throated Saltator
Crimson-backed Tanager
Lemon-rumped Tanager (aka Flame-rumped Tanager, ssp. icteronotus)
Blue-grey Tanager

and then came the Grey-headed Chachalacas...

Oh look - three clay-colored thrushes. Actually - I have someone in my house who enjoys this live cam MUCH more than I do. My cat. She's transfixed in front of the computer screen when I have this up...but I have to clean the paw prints off my monitor every once in a while!

The thrushes can be a bit of a pain - aggressive with each other and most other stuff visiting. I was just about to tune out yesterday when 4 Aracari turned up. There was at least one present for most of the next 20 minutes during which time nothing else dared to feed. Even the woodpeckers couldn't summon up the courage. The other birds were obviously still right there because as soon as the Aracari left the table even for a moment they were instantly back.
Seemed to me that they regarded the Aracari as dangerous or predatory - I read that they take thrush and tanager fledglings in season - wonder if they'd take an adult given the opportunity.
One of the Aracari has a deformed beak with the lower mandible badly twisted - but it seemed to be feeding OK (though it stayed longer than the others).

Interesting that there never seemed to be even the slightest aggressive behaviour between them - even when three were feeding on a single piece of fruit.

There were at least 3 Common Opossums (I think 4 is more likely) yesterday night, one of them quite large. They started to appear not too long after it got dark. This species is one of the 12 opossum species in Panama (and distinct from the Virginia Opossum, which occurs in North America). Here's some images of 3 of them from yesterday.

One of the Morpho butterflies (any clues on species?) also showed up briefly yesterday, feeding on fruit juices or salts on the feeding table. Here's some pics. Unfortunately couldn't get the impressive and electric blue of the upperside...

Possibly a worn Morpho helenor, complicated group.

I can now positively add a Tennessee Warbler to the watch list. Not at the Feeder directly but at the purple flowers in the background.
Furthermore Chestnut-headed oropendola at the feeder this morning.

Edit: There was an Ant Tanager as well. Probably red-crowned

I think the fruit supply must just have been replenished. Eleven chacharacas feeding at one time - although I only caught eight on my screen-grab!

Saw what looks like to be a Red-Legged Honeycreeper briefly visiting the feeder.
Now (11:53 camera time) also female too.

You beat me to it! I just happened to bring up the feed and we saw the male honeycreeper for about a minute before it flew off.

eta: two male honeycreepers a minute ago, gone now.

Beautiful species! I didn't see it live but managed to scroll back to the exact time you mention (you can scroll back in time 4 hours from the current time). Very nice!

I just counted 8, possibly 11, chachalacas at the feeder. There was much coming and going and 'hiding' behind another so the exact count was tricky.

eta: I see Surreybirder (above) definitely counted 11.
