Sloths, monkeys and birds, as well as pet coatimundis were a few highlights on this morning’s skiff ride. As we edged into the Supay River, the birds began to capture our attention: tanagers, parakeets, macaws, and several species of hawk. Our guide, Sandro, told us the collection of structures, was a ‘clinic’ of sorts, operated by local Shaman-medicine people. Here, we observed some beautiful cream-colored woodpeckers in the trees above the clinic. From one of the buildings emerged two women with smiles and waves. Upon departure, we were told one of the men walking about the property was also a Shaman.
