Why I Love it here, one of several reasons.

It's 5:30 a.m. the sun is lighting the San Gil area with gilded edges on the few clouds that cover the mountain. Pretty soon the Hummingbirds start their morning routine of baths and flower pecking. First I see these hummingbirds grooming their feathers and shaking the dews drops from the bougainvillea:


Then this guy decides to take a bath on the salmon-orange bloooms of the bouganvillea:



Just a few minutes later we're visited by the Chachalacas (Ortalis vetula) the smaller member of the "Crassidae" family (Turkeys) that live right here in the Jungle. If you turn up the volume you'll see why they are called "chachalakas"
