These pedestrians are in no rush to reach the other side of the road.
Hiking in the jungle on man made trails has been part of many tours here in Kabalebo. Of course under guidance other wise you will take the wrong turn. I have set on some hiking trails a couple of trophy cams just to see how crowded the traffic would be when rush hour is over (tourists passing by). Here are some results (taking at the River Cabin trail):
Time is not essential, just as long as the trails are clear. We see 2 different kind of birds strolling by right in front of the trophy cam: a Black Curassow and a White-tipped Dove.
We even notice some mammals you wouldn't see during the day: an Acouchy (smaller version of Red-rumped Agouti), an ocelot (nocturnal predator) and a Grison (one that lives near the water).
The trophy cam doesn't get any rest at all. Early in the morning we spotted a Lowland tapir and Red-brocket Deer passing by too.
These pedestrians were surely in no hurry to cross over. It seems that they were eating some mope scattered on the ground. These Grey-winged Trumpeters were even enjoying the morning sun (basking).
So whenever you take a hike in the jungle and it is quiet, this doesn't mean that there is nothing out there. They just wait until the coast is clear to come out.
