Sunday morning

Sunday dawn:  A pair of torrent ducks played in the river. 
We set off uphill on a misty morning. 
We heard more birds than spotted them, but it was hard to complain. 
These begonias were at a house owned by a British family. 
Arsenio spotted two arasari toucans playing in the trees in the distance. 
We saw another choco toucan too and lots of smaller birds including one with a bright blue collar and a small brown hawk. 
But the best sight awaited us after a breakfast of quimbolitos, corn and wheat treats steamed in banana leaves: 
a gorgeous motmot in the tree beside the river.
