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.
