Greetings Birders! After some attempts at running a 24-7 live cam, I’ve opted for edited videos instead. I plan to do a morning live cam in the peak birding season, hopefully beginning in late October. The migration is late this year. From that, I’ll have lots of footage to edit together. I’m also going to create a series of short videos of individual birds.

Lots of comments about bread and nails. This was the only day I put bread on the feeder. I was throwing everything out there to attract as many birds as possible. The nails don’t hurt them. They help keep the larger birds from carrying off the food (it only takes a few seconds and fruit is expensive!). I’ve since stopped using the nails though.

Cast of characters: Collared Aracari Toucans, several kinds of woodpeckers, Oropendula, Palm Tanagers, Blue/Gray Tanagers, Baltimore Orioles, Clay-colored Thrush (the national bird of Costa Rica), Red-legged Honeycreepers, Black-Cowled Oriole, Euphonias, a few varieties of hummingbirds, and more. In the trees but not in view, parrots and a Keel-billed Toucan. Every morning is like a trip to the zoo!
