Birds Of A Feather…………

March 5, 2008

Every morning at the hotel in Cancun, we were awakened at the crack of dawn by the resident peacock. During the day he and his mate roamed the patio by the swimming pool, oblivious to the hotel guests. (But I suspect looking for “handouts.”)

Further south in the Sian Ka’an biosphere the resident iguana (of which there are many) is quieter. And this one didn’t move too much either. I saw him “sitting” there, went for a 10 minute walk to retrieve my camera, came back and he hadn’t moved. But a gecko living in the thatch roof over our bedroom was a little more mobile and vocal, waking us on the dot at 6am with a “squawk.” Every day.
