One tree = food for many bird species

In this case we spent just a couple hours around this fig tree ( (thats what I think it is, pls correct me if im wrong there) Ficus aurea, commonly known as the Florida strangler fig (or simply strangler fig), golden fig, or higuerĂ³n, is a tree in the family Moraceae that is native to the U.S. state of Florida, the northern and western Caribbean, southern Mexico and Central America south to Panama.) located in Altos del Maria Panama. it is amazing the amount of bird species that where present feeding from the small and ripe figs found on that tree and we are sure there where many more species that we did not see or that came later or earlier to the feast. If you want to observe birds find or plant one of those trees in your neighborhood. We let you to the joy of identifying the species in the attached images, sorry not all images are good ones as time was limited we where able to spend there and they are rather to id the species then as “good” bird photographs.
