Very interesting to meet Patrick and Rubyann and hear them talk about their bits projects. The blue and gold Macaw Boki was a nice acquaintance.

Patrick and Rubyanne are so friendly. This was a great couple of hours spent on our rest day after our 2 day hike through Corcovado National Park. The kids (and adults) found it very educational and the birds are beautiful!
