Panama fruit feeder (1 Viewer)

I have been watching the Panama fruit feeder webcam at Canopy lodge for several months, and have managed to identify most of what I have seen. However, there is a small green bird that pops up very occasionally, that I have not been able to ID. It appeared again today for nearly a minute between 07:59 and 08:00 (local time).


TIA.

It all appears to be black and white on my monitor, I can't see any birds either at the time point?

I'm still seeing it OK on mine. The time is on the info bar at the top of picture. To see the bar, you need to be in full screen. Just slide the time bar (bottom of screen) back to minus XXX (just over 64 minutes as I type right now).

I've taken a photo of the bird off the screen to see if that helps.

It's a Tanager but I need to check which, is it definitely green?
Yes, olive green uppers and yellowish flanks and breast. I had kind of moved away from Tanagers, as the bird was noticably smaller than the Blue Gray Tanagers that were around.

Some kind of rail on the bird table about 2 hrs 33 ago....and quite a few squirrels at first light. This will be a nice window to look at whilst in Lockdown...Very good and thanks for posting.

Yes, best webcam I've found by far. The rails are Gray-cowled Wood-rails, and they are vicious. There is some kind of possum that visits at night. High-light today were the Chestnut-headed Oropendolas that visited a short while ago.

I understand that Cornell put this webcam mostly for advertisement of birding. So, for the sake of the broad public, it would be good to put into the youtube comments an ID guide to most common birds (at least species list + links to Ebird).

I think there was sort of one in the Cornell website where the livefeed is (was?) also available, but I haven't checked lately.

If you click the link in post one and scroll down far enough you will see one.

I just realized the same video is at three locations: on the Cornell website, on Youtube as Cornell, and on Youtube as explore.org. I feel it would be good to clearly link to the species guide at Youtube as Cornell, because it is too difficult to find for the attention span of an average viewer. I am not sure what control Cornell has on the explore.org comment.
