May 26, 2018 - Delfin II
The week seems to have rushed by in swirl of colorful birds, leaping monkeys and slow-motion sloths. We have become enthralled and entranced by sloths carrying babies, squadron flights of macaw’s overhead and shorelines filled with dozens of snowy and great egrets. The rivers, which cradle the Pacaya-Samiria Reserve, hold a wealth of life that most of us never could have imagined existed.
We have been privileged to get a glimpse of the birds, mammals, reptiles and insects that flourish in this hot, wet, humid and beautiful landscape. Names that were foreign to us seven days ago now roll off our tongues like familiar friends, “why yes, I did see the plum-throated cotinga, did you notice the bluish-fronted jacamar and the Muscovy duck flying overhead?”
The day and our week ended at Puerto Miguel with a perusal of local crafts, a scarlet macaw posing in a palm tree, an island with wooly monkeys and a pond of magnificent giant water lilies. The diversity continued to our very last outing and the frosting on the cake was a magnificent sunset with gold tinged water and billowing storm clouds in the distance.
