|Dawn along the Rio Shiripuno. |
We heard parrots - we just couldn't see them.
|This caiman was about three feet long.|
Some grow up to 12 feet.
This is what a busy parrot lick looks like - not my experience at Yasuni.
(This trip, taken a few years ago, was the first time I combined parrots with paddling - in some ways, the inspiration for this blog's title. Different versions of this adventure have appeared previously in different magazines, including the Georgia Straight and Parrots magazine.)
