Mathias

Mathias the Hotel Macaw
 
 
 
 
 
We gave Mathias some fruit when he walked down to the restaurant on our first morning. Then we visited him at his house to formally introduce ourselves
 
 
 
 
After his juice he climbed into the tree above his house
 
 
 
 
 
Watching Mathias we heard what we thought was a frog or toad. We were shocked when it was this chap - a Croaking Ground-Dove 
 
 
 
 
Watched by this chap - an Eared Dove
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
We went off for a night to Colca Canyon and on our return we told Mathias all about it. The morning we left we visited again. He thought about my shoulder, then chose my hand
 
 
 
 
 
More juice
 
 
 
 
Then it was time to tell Bear all about it
 
 
 
 
Pose for a picture
 
 
 
 
Nod farewell.......
 
 
 
 
 
...........and see us off on the next section of our at-venture
 
 
 
ALL IN ALL A BIT SCRUFFY FOR TEN BUT WE STILL FELL FOR MATHIAS
