This Atobá (Brown Booby) broke its wing and was rescued by a man, who pampered him back to his old strength. Although a bit clumsy, Atobás are great divers and this particular one even learned how to play fetch during his involuntary confinement to the ground. He now frequently visits his rescuer to play a round or two.

"Until the Pereira Passos reforms, downtown Rio de Janeiro had been a heterogeneous jumble of commercial establishments […] along with residences running the social gamut from the poorest tenements (called cortiços, “honeycombs”) to the palatial homes of millionaires. […] The Cariocas, inhabitants of Rio de Janeiro, moved out of the center of town in two directions. The impoverished denizens of the vanishing cortiços took shelter in the new hillside shantytowns called favelas scattered throughout the city on ground too steep for other constructions or else moved out along railroad lines to the North Zone. Meanwhile, the prosperous former inhabitants of the old downtown settled increasingly in the beachfront neighborhoods of Copacabana and Ipanema in the South Zone, now connected to the city center by a recently excavated tunnel.” (Vianna, Hermano (1999): The Mystery of Samba.
