Spectacled Owl at Pook's Hill has a favourite perch where it often comes at dusk. We had great views for about 10 minutes, then it flew over our heads so closely we felt the woosh of its silent wings. 2 March 2011.

The Kinkajou is a nocturnal mammal of the rainforest and is related to raccoons. It has a prehensile tail, but is not a monkey. In the evening at Pook's Hill it often comes close to the lodge to feed on fruiting trees such as this cecropia. 2 March 2011.
