Take a moment to delight in nature even from your own home
I was buying a new bird feeder and I was surprised to see in the store a live camera located in Panama, and all the beautiful and colorful wildlife coming to the fruit feeder, from butterflies, to squirrels, to amazingly colorful birds, at night you will also see the possums coming to eat. However, my favorites are a family of the most colorful toucans!!!
You can even see the staff coming around almost every hour to replenish the tropical fruits in the feeder. Bananas, pineapples, watermelons, oranges, papaya, etc.
Then I found out that there are cameras all over the world, live 24/7. Some are inside nests showing the growth of the baby chicks, some are feeders like for example in Ontario (Canada) where you will see cardinals and blue jays during the winter, others in Hawaii, etc.
I hope that when you have a rainy day and you need a little sunshine in your life and lots of colorful birds you can take a few minutes to contemplate the beauty of nature and wildlife. Enjoy!
The Panama Fruit Feeder Cam is a collaboration between the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Canopy Family.
About the Site The Panama Fruit Feeder Cam is located on the grounds of the Canopy Lodge in El Valle de Antón, Panama. This site is just over 2,000 ft above sea level in the low mountains of Cerro Gaital, with a mild springtime climate year-round. A small stream called Rio Guayabo runs past the feeders in the background, and the lush landscaping of the Canopy Lodge grounds grade into the forested slopes around them. The feeding table is around 40 feet from the main lodge, and is one of several feeders provisioned throughout the day so that guests to the lodge are greeted to spectacular views of many of the common birds found in this ecosystem.
Here are the names of some of the birds that you will see:
