One Rufous Motmot Feeds Another On The Panama Fruit Feeder – April 3, 2020

A Rufous Motmot was spotted feeding another some papaya on the platform. This behavior between two adults of the same species is known as “allofeeding.” This type of activity is right in line with the start of mating season (as well as the rainy season) in Panama. It’s also interesting to note that the motmot doing the feeding is the one-eyed individual that we have been observing for well over a year now on the feeder.
