Welcome to Battling Birds: Panama Edition!
The Panama Fruit Feeder cam features a feeding table located on the grounds of the Canopy Lodge in El Valle de Antón, Panama. Here, birds feed on one of the many feeding tables located at the lodge that allows both guests at the lodge and online viewers to enjoy the incredible views of these tropical birds. In our first investigation with this cam, Panama Live, we learned about the arrival patterns of six common species.
We’re now teaming up with Dr. Eliot Miller for a second investigation, Battling Birds: Panama Edition. Similar to Battling Birds, we want to study the social behavior of birds at a feeder, but this time in Panama. Panama Fruit Feeder cam viewers have expressed interest in learning more about aggression, a behavior that Dr. Miller has studied in North American feeder birds. With the community’s interest and Dr. Miller’s expertise, we can piece together the puzzle. How do species relate to each other on the feeder? Who are the winners? Who are the losers?
