Three-toed Sloth Visits The Panama Fruit Feeder In The Wee Hours Of The Morning – Aug. 16, 2020

Near dawn, a Three-toed Sloth came slowly into view above the feeding platform. It makes its way across the Cam and then down to the ground and later ascends the tree behind the feeding platform. Three-toed Sloths are adept swimmers, though traveling on the ground is laborious and potentially dangerous, so they do not spend much time out of trees.

Panama Fruit Feeder New Cam Species: Tawny-capped Euphonia – July 28, 2020

Meet the Tawny-capped Euphonia. This is one we suspect may have appeared on the Cam before, though it’s not been documented until now. The males are richly colored with bright yellow underparts, sapphire backs and a crown the color of farm-fresh egg yolks. The females are dull olivey-yellow like many other female euphonias, but have a distinct, tawny forecrown.

Tropical Natural Paradise: Panama & Costa Rica | Free Documentary Nature

Whoever wants to experience Central America as a nature paradise in a small area, should explore Costa Rica. Almost half of the country is covered by rain forest. Numerous animal species are to be found here like the White-faced Capuchin, colourful parrots like the Macaw, Veruga Parakeets and Tapirs.

Also, lizards from primeval times have their habitat in this region of the planet. The small central American nation not only fascinates with rich fauna and flora but also with a wonder world under water. Insights into the fascinating world of the jungle show examples like the epiphytes that make their way to the sky at the expense of their host plants.

A view into the culture of the Indian inhabitants of the rain forest, of course, does not come too briefly either. A diving excursion through the ocean waters of Cocos Island is the highlight of the journey. The spectator will get flesh crawl while watching hundreds of dangerous hammerhead sharks gliding past the camera.

Mantled howler monkeys in Panama


This 7 June 2020 video says about itself:

The Mantled Howler Monkey is the loudest animal of the rainforest

The Mantled Howler Monkey (Alouatta palliata) is one of the most prominent species of monkeys in the beautiful country of Panama. It thrives in deep lush jungles along the Canal of Panama and spends most of the day in the canopy of large mature tropical trees. Its home is typically the hostile and busy rain forests of most of Central and South America.

Like most of its cousins, the Mantled Howler will likely eat anything smaller than its own size. On the other hand, its natural predators are mainly feline like the jaguar and puma among other big predatory cats. The infamous loud and threatening sounding call of the Mantled Howler Monkey resonates over the thick dramatic and stunning vegetation of the Gamboa region and can be heard far in the distance through the jungle.

Among 5 other relatives of monkey species present in Panama, the Mantled Howler also shares its beautiful natural habitat with dozens of other mammal species and hundreds of bird species. Footage in this two-hour continuous uninterrupted calm and relaxing compilation was filmed in 4K Ultra High Definition in the evergreen humid rain forest of the lush Pipeline Road hiking trail in Gamboa, Panama.

Panama Fruit Feeder New Cam Species: Yellow-billed Cacique – June 1, 2020

This has been a busy “slow season” at the Panama Fruit Feeder. Yet another new-to-the-cam species has visited. The Yellow-billed Cacique is a retiring blackbird of thickets and tangles that is heard far more often than seen. Note the pale ivory-yellow bill, that all but shines in the densely-vegetated habitats they occupy, and their staring yellow eyes.

Many Nectar Bats Taking Their Evening Meal At The Panama Fruit Feeder – May 23, 2020

Orange Nectar Bats aren’t the only mammals to visit the Panama Fruit Feeder at night, though they are certainly the most active. These bats have unique mouth physiology that allows them to use their muscles, as well as capillary action, to draw nectar from plants and feeders. Their tongues have a pair of grooves, lined many small muscles, that are used to force the nectar up and into their mouths.

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.
