When I arrived at the path parallel to the river, there it was the guan having a bath of ash powder left by the Pachamama rites! A lifer for me. I know the guan had been seen recently but I had not been lucky enough. I was trembling with emotion and the runners going by indifferently and the bird was indifferent, too. Though when I began to take photos, so did others. Sally Dietrich
