The Monkeys Arrived

The Monkeys ArrivedMonkeys in my backyard…literally!

Finally the monkeys came down! This is something we can look forward to every autumn once the temperature drops. They descend in search of berries, seeds, even tree bark for food. There is something so special about looking into a monkeys eyes. They have so many expressions, like no other wild animal I have seen. I suppose it’s their curiosity, personality, and how they move about using their limbs that make them so intriguing to watch. Here in the yungas of NW Argentina the brown capuchin monkey is one of my favorite attractions!
