Sacha: Amazon Day 2 (Part II)...Ecuador: December 27, 2009

Forgot to mention that the Sacha Lodge walkway was not just about birds, as Red Howler Monkeys (bottom photo) were seen stretching and waking up in the treetops a short time after dawn. However, the most entertaining primate sighting was a pair of comical (less than pint-size) Pygmy Marmosets that were undertaking a strange grooming session, presumably to reinforce their bond. From the look on the front marmosets face (top photo), I am not quite sure they were both enjoying it equally!
