Scarlet macaws at the Tambopata Research Center. The macaws waited around the rafters by the dining area to draw people out so one bird could swoop in and steal bread from the table while everyone was taking pictures. We were all outsmarted.

Blue-and-yellow macaws on a tree over the clay lick seen from the scope. #amazonanthem #tambopata #macaws #rainforest #peru (at Reserva Nacional Tambopata - Madre de Dios)

Blue-and-yellow macaws arriving at the clay lick. Clay licks are known as collpas in Peru, meaning “salty earth” in Quechua. The birds gather here to socialize and eat the clay to get minerals like sodium missing from their diets. Hundreds of parrots and parakeets can be seen flying over this area and sitting in the trees above the clay river bank.

Waiting in the blind at the clay lick. 6 species of macaw can be commonly found in Tambopata, including the rarely seen blue-headed macaw.

Macaws sitting on an artificial nest. The Tambopata Research Center is home to the Tambopata Macaw Project where these beautiful birds are studied to help conservation efforts in areas that don’t have the healthy macaw populations of southeastern Peru. Macaws only nest in natural tree cavities, many of which are found on trees subject to selective logging. Artificial nests put up by the researchers allow more birds to nest and maintain healthy populations.

The meeting of the Malinowsky and Tampobata Rivers at the Malinowsky Check Point. You can easily tell which side is which because the Malinowsky has a high concentration of gold mining activity upstream that floods the beautiful waters with sediment and gives it a muddy orange-ish brown color.
