Peru – Macaw Clay Lick and Piranha

We had a 3-hour standoff with macaws before they finally came down to the river bank to eat clay. Unlike their hasty relatives in smaller size, parrots, macaws were very cautious and took themselves much more seriously.

Peru – Tambopata National Reserve

Tambopata National Reserve was created by the Peruvian government in 1990 to protected rainforest and species within. We took the boat 4-hour upstream passing through the reserve to Chuncho area to watch Macaw's clay lick the next day morning.
