Join a new Bird Cams Lab investigation at the Panama fruit feeder! Our feathered friends are flocking to the Panama Fruit Feeder cam in high numbers, providing viewers with an opportunity to make new discoveries about tropical birds and their behaviors at the feeder. There's no better time to ask questions, collect data, and learn more about these often understudied tropical species—let's get started.
The Bird Cams Lab community has taken the first step to discovery by identifying a question that they are interested in investigating at the Panama fruit feeder:
When do different bird species arrive at the feeder–and does the pattern change throughout the day?
Now we need your help to figure out how to refine this question so that we can use a brand new tool to collect data in real time from the live stream. Sign up today, and you'll be directed to the Panama Investigation Question Design page where you can discuss the next steps with the Bird Cams Lab community.
By signing up you agree to be contacted with information about the Bird Cams Lab project, including the Panama Fruit Feeder cam investigation. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology may seek your feedback and learn from your participation to help improve the program and its outcomes related to learning, participation, and scientific discovery. Results of participation, when shared, will be anonymous.
