I'll invite my sister,

so you can meet her.

Yellow rictus.

Black talons.

White head with some brown stripes.

Black primaries with white tips,

one of them all white.

It's a case of partial albinism.

I once captured one of these

on a birdwatch.

Female adult.

Llano Largo, Santa Rosa.


And those are yesterday's notes.

Good work, darling.

She is so confident.

If she's not careful

she's going to get hurt.

I want her to stop coming.

How is it?


It's worse and worse.

I want to see it.

That's not a good idea.

It's dangerous.

We have to find someone else.

What about the male nurse you met?

Trial and error.

Don't get near it, Vernica!




Come on, "Piss man"!

I'm also in an unhealthy relationship.


I don't want him to call me

because I always fall for it.

I can't help it.

Then I feel so bad,

like if I had a hangover.

It's like an addiction

that won't let me be free.

And some people

could end up really hurt.

I'm in a similar situation.

And why aren't you together?

We started to hurt each other.

But he calls and you always go back?

He doesn't call me.

I just keep going back and can't stop.

It's complicated.

What is he like?

I'm not sure if it's a he or a she.

- You're teasing me!

- I'm not!

Show me a picture, I'll tell you.

I don't have any pictures!



You know you have beautiful eyes?

Thank you.

One, two, three!

Swing, swing, swing,

Don't miss the target.

Where are you going?

Are you sure you are going to the potty?

- Yes!

- Run!

Wasn't your brother going to come?

He said so.

But maybe he got busy at work.

He might come along with Vero.


His new friend Vernica.

A girlfriend?

But he's a super faggot!

Woman friend!
