Welcome to the
Wonder Board forum!

Join Cornell Lab researcher Dr. Eliot Miller to discover more about the social life of the birds on the Panama Fruit Feeder cam. When we designed Panama Live, the first Bird Cams Lab investigation with this cam, the community expressed interest in learning more about aggression. Now we can! When birds forage at the feeding table, who are the winners and the losers?

Help us figure out what we need to consider when answering this question and if there are other questions you want to investigate! 

We’ll be using Zooniverse to collect data and you can learn more about how we’ll do that here.
