An utterly stunning morning at a clay lick in Tambopata. Over the course of an hour we witnessed hundreds of parrots gather to ingest the sodium-rich earth, one of the coolest phenomenons in the Peruvian Amazon.

Manú National Park is home to a large clay lick where many types of birds and animals visit. The area is popular in particularly with the macaws. Hundreds of scarlet macaws gather every morning to nibble on the clay which settles their tummies from their acidic diets. You’ll notice macaws tend to travel in pairs, as when they find their special macaw friend, it’s for life. 🇵🇪💑👯‍♀️👬🍊👅❤️#macaws #claylick #manu #amazon #jungle #guacamayo #lapa #birdwatching #accidentalbirder #birdsofinstagram #peru #birdsofperu #viajar #travel #instatravel #travelgram #wanderers #getlost #southamerica #gringossinbanderas

Recuerdo muy bien cuándo empecé a interesarme por la fotografía de naturaleza, fue en  enero de 1994, cuando aluciné con las fotos de guacamayos de Frans Lanting publicadas en National Geographic. Algunos años más tarde pude fotografiar estas aves en el Tambopata Research Center, en la collpa Colorado la más grande y mejor estudiada del amazonas.

I remember exactly when I became interested in wildlife photography, it was January 1994, when macaw’s pictures taken by Frans Lanting published on National Geographic Magazine blown me away. Some years later I had the opportunity to stay at Tambopata Research Center and during some days I really enjoyed photographing these incredible birds at the biggest and best studied clay lick in the amazon basin, the collpa Colorado. #scarlettmacaw #macaws #madaboutbirds #jungles #rainforest #tambopataresearchcenter #tambopatanationalreserve #collpacolorado #claylick #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #peru

Hola todos.
Quiero iniciar la semana con esta fotografía de una pareja de Pavas goliazul (Pipile cumanensis) captadas mientras visitaban un saladero al interior del Parque Nacional Yasuní.

Encontré las GUACAMAYAS!!!!!!!!!! There were more than 60 and there were Scarlet Macaws, Red and Green Macaws, Yellow and Blue Macaws and Chestnut Fronted Macaws, at the clay lick where they gather and come for breakfast, as featured on tv by David Attenborough and the BBC. When Costa Rica nearly lost its entire population of Macaws, the research centre here sent eggs to restart the population, and now Costa Rica is known for a place to see Macaws. But really it’s here - The Tambopata National Reserve in the Madre De Dios region of the Amazon Rainforest, named the most biodiverse place surviving on the planet 🌎 #amazonas #madrededios #guacamayas #macaws #parrotlove #tambopata #amazonrainforest #claylick #birdwatching #birdnerd #parrotsofinstagram #scarletmacaws #inthewild #animalesalvajes #lovenature #traveltuesday #myfavouriteanimal #dreamcometrue #laselva #peru #southamerica #girlslovetravel #exploretheworld #viajerasoy #thisisperu #CTPeru #biodiversity #iloveparrots

Amazing how many yellow-crowned parrots, mealy parrots and blue-headed parrots are coming to the Tambo Blanquillo Macaw Claylick at Manú.

When you arrive at 6.00am in the morning to see different parrots and macaws at the Macaw Claylick at Manú, Peru. It was a sunny day. We waited three hours for the red-and-green macaws to finally come down to the claylick from up the trees. More than 100 red-and-green macaws came down. Definitely worth the wait. I felt so lucky having seen so many all at once! Like an 8th worldwonder 😂

Waiting for the #macaw #spectacle . Have you ever seen a macaw #claylick in the #amazon #rainforest?
A clay lick filled with parakeets,  parrots, and the odd macaw... #Ecuador #amazonriverbasin #amazon #parrots #parakeets #claylick
This was wildest wildlife experience i have had. We woke before sunrise to hike to a thatch hideout opposite the claylick along the river. It took two hours from hearing the first call until approx 150 giant macaws all descended onto the claylick at once, then fed, screeched and played around for about 45 minutes then they left, all at once.

AMAZONIAN MACAWS | The Colorado Clay Lick is located along the Tambopata River in Peru. The mineral-rich clay is a valuable commodity to the macaws and parrots who depend on it for their sodium intake. It also helps reduce the effects of toxins they ingest as part of their diet. It’s incredible to watch these macaws fill the sky with colour in the Amazon Basin. This print is available in matte, semi-gloss, or framed.

A Cobalt-winged Parakeet takes off from a mineral-rich natural pool of water in the Amazon rainforest of Yasuni National Park, Ecuador. I love the blues in the wings when this species takes flight!

Tambopata Natural Reserve, Peru🌱🕷🐍🐅 5hours morning wait for these beautiful creatures called Macaws to come out and do their thing after the rain has soaked the clay. Worth it ✔

Beautiful show caught on camera through binoculars from the great guide Robin at Eco time tours in Collpas Tambopata inn. 🚣

Throw back to my trip in the Amazon in Peru last Nov. Was watching parrots licking clay. We were super quiet and still because the parrots are very alert and easily frightened, for they are preys to other bigger animals. .

SCARLET MACAW - it took some patients and couple of hours but finally this macaw got used to our presence and 
came down to get his daily dose of clay to replenish the salts and help to neutralise toxins from his diets. What a view

The parrot clay licks are one of the most striking and colorful experiences when you visit the Amazon jungle in Ecuador. Located in the Yasuni National Park, near the Napo River, you find one of the biggest parrot clay licks, a natural formation caused by erosion where parrots, parakeets and macaws go daily.
Parrot clay licks have become a center of observation and study of this group of birds. The Añangu community built a place just next to the licks for allowing us to take photos and videos of the parrots.

Today presenting at the Amazon Theatre, Claylick, featuring The Scarlet Macaws 🎟 😃
The scarlet macaw rainbow-colored feathers and its loud squawk are just distinctive. They are found usually on the wet lowland forest of the Amazonia flying in small flocks. This bird is now classified as endangered species mainly because of its popularity in the pet trade market. 
Interesting facts:
* 	In the Amazon rainforest, they flock to riverbeds (claylicks) to eat clay.
* 	Macaws are the world’s largest parrots.
* 	Scarlet Macaws can fly up to 35 miles per hour (56 km/hour).
* 	They can measure almost a metre long, of which more than half is their tails.

Along exposed river banks in the western Amazon basin macaws and other parrots in rainbow hues flock by the hundreds. They come to gather clay that they’ll later eat in nearby trees. It’s a dazzling sight for human onlookers, but it’s been a bit of a mystery for science. Why would various types of macaws and other parrots want to gorge on clay when normally they eat plant matter?
At first, studies hinted that the clay might help remove toxins, such as naturally occurring tannins, that the birds ingest from plants. When animals in general consume clay, it can help neutralize such toxins through the process of adsorption, in which the clay binds to the tannins before the gastrointestinal tract can absorb them. The toxins then get excreted alongside the clay. (Some humans also eat or drink clay to combat stomach problems and other issues, and many pharmacies around the world sell activated charcoal, another adsorbant that can bind with toxins or drugs to prevent them from being gastrointestinally absorbed.) It began to rain and the parakeets did not perform their usual clay lick. 🌴🐒🐸🐜🌱🦋

Got so many pictures of birds stacked up since Ecuador. Here's one of two parrots, on their way to eat some breakfast clay. These birds' primary diet consists of toxic berries and the clay contains a lot of anti-toxins that help them stay alive and healthy. #ecuador #amazonas #travel #nature #parrot #clay #claylick #toxic #berries #bird #birds
Working in the Amazon rainforest can be tough, but definitely has its perks! A few things we recently spotted on our 'commute' to one of our field sites in Peru's Tambopata region (clockwise from left: capybara with parasite-gleaning cowbird, red-and-green macaws at a riverside clay lick, & a turtle with long wing butterflies drinking its tears for salt). #amazon #rainforest #jungle #peru #tambopata #river #capybara #macaw #parrot #geophagy #claylick #turtle #taricaya #butterfly #puddling #wildlife

While volunteering for the Tambopata Macaw Project in Peru I had to monitor this large cliff known as a clay-lick for six hour shifts. I would record every species of parrot heard or seen and their use of the clay-lick. It was a very time consuming and exhausting job yet was always very rewarding as I got to see many events take place such as Ornate hawk-eagles hunting parrots in flight.

The Colorado clay lick is the largest in the world spanning over 500 metres and is one of the most biodiverse in terms of the species of parrots it attracts. In this video there are Blue and Gold macaws, Mealy parrots, Red-bellied macaws and Blue-headed parrots. Many more species can be seen here!
