Panama Fruit Feeder Cam New Species: Tawny-crested Tanager – April 29, 2020

We can happily add another tanager to the list of species seen on the Panama Fruit Feeder Cam! A male Tawny-crested Tanager made a cautious visit this morning. Males are all black with a conspicuous yellow-orange crest. Females can be confusing as they are a dark, dull brown, though males are usually nearby to help with identification. This tanager is often seen in noisy flocks in the dense forests that line the road that Canopy Lodge is on, though they are not very common near the Lodge itself.

Panama Fruit Feeder Cam New Species: Black-headed Saltator – April 29, 2020

Black-headed Saltators are not considered common around the Canopy Lodge, so we count ourselves lucky to have seen one at the feeder! We have already seen Streaked and Buff-throated Saltators on cam, with the Buff-throated being a somewhat common visitor to the platform. The Black-headed Saltator can be told from the others by the stark transition from golden-green to black at the nape. Their song is a loud string of cackling, scratchy squawks that ends in a whistle. Both sexes sing, often in duet.
