Bird Watching at the Panama Fruit Feeder

panama fruit feeder bird cam

Watch the action here at the Panama Fruit Feeder Bird Cam! Located on the grounds of the Canopy Lodge in El Valle de Antón, Panama, the feeder is just over 2,000 ft above sea level in the low mountains of Cerro Gaital. It has a mild springtime climate year-round.

A small stream called Rio Guayabo runs past the feeders in the background, and the lush landscaping of the Canopy Lodge grounds grade into the forested slopes around them. The peaceful feeding table is around 40 feet from the main lodge. It is one of several feeders provisioned throughout the day so that guests to the lodge are greeted to spectacular views of many of the common birds found in this ecosystem.

Not seeing any birds?

Is it night time, or are there just no birds present for some reason? If so, you can check out these highlight reels saved by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology here:

About the Canopy Lodge

The Canopy Lodge is a full service lodge specializing in nature tourism with a focus on birds. It is about 60 miles west of Panama City in the picturesque village of El Valle de Antón, right in the center of the gigantic crater of an extinct volcano. This is the largest inhabited crater in the Western Hemisphere and second only to the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. It is surrounded by the Cerro Gaital Natural Monument. Canopy Lodge is one of a series of three ecotourism ventures developed by the Canopy Family. The first, Canopy Tower, involved transforming a former U.S. radar station overlooking the Panama Canal in Soberanía National Park into a unique birding lodge embedded in the canopy of the surrounding forest. Their newest property, Canopy Camp, offers a taste of some of the wildest lowland rainforest in Panama in the Darién region. You can learn more about all of them on this website,
