Everybody Knows About The Bird

Among the things to see at the top of Mount Calamorro (see Wednesday’s blog post) is a birds of prey sanctuary. It’s a pretty spectacular spot and the keepers offer educational shows twice a day. We scheduled our trip up the teleférico so we’d arrive in time for the 1:00 show, which was excellent, even though, due to the lack of winds at the top, some of the high-flying segments had to be cancelled. We did get to see two vultures take off on the limited air currents. But we were warned they might hang out on the rock ridges below until they found an updraft. They finally coasted back in about 20 minutes later, after the show had ended.

BEFORE THE SHOW: OWLET UNDER GLASS.
(BABY OWL THROUGH WINDOW.)
THIS VULTURE STAYED CLOSE TO HOME.
SOME VISITORS GOT TO BE PERCHES.
AFTER THE SHOW: WE GOT TO MEET THE KIDS.
THANKFULLY, NO PARTING GIFTS (I WAS WARNED).
NEXT TIME, I THINK I’LL WEAR A HAT.

Don’t you know about the bird?
