Our Silver-beaked Tanagers (Ramphocelus carbo) are our most successful breeding bird species in the rainforest. So far our adult male and two females have produced eight healthy chicks. Four have already gone to live at other institutions in Seattle and Memphis. One of our adult females laid two eggs on March 16th. She can be seen sitting on her nest in the Peach Palm (Bactris gasipaes), canopy level. With an incubation time of approximately 10 – 14 days, we expect the chicks to hatch sometime around March 28th.
