No witty title, just pictures and more pictures from the canyon with the military macaw colony. I want to go back with a tripod and really get started at 5am to see the big movement of the birds first thing as they exit the canyon. And, yes, I know that a tripod won’t really help with the birds in flight, but it will with the perched ones. This canyon is home to the largest colony in Mexico with approximately 90 military macaws. The location is also a sanctuary for the macaws within a bioreserve. Awesome.

There was a hurricane off the coast which meant it was drizzling basically the whole weekend, but that kept temperatures reasonable. The huge biting red ants were not though, and my left leg is periodically driving me crazy with itchiness from the 4 enormous lumps of bites that do not seem to be diminishing. Still worth it.

I’m really glad I got to tag along, because this place is definitely somewhere on the extreme side of “tucked away,” which made it all the more special.

Some people didn't want to get so close to the edge to take a picture of the canyon.
