Brief description of Amazon Wildlife Tambopata Macaw  4 days:

Colpa is a name in Quechua that means (salt land) These are very few places that are found in the Amazon of South America, they are very special because they visit different diversities of species found on the cliffs of the rivers or in the middle of the deep jungle are mud that contains sodium and many mineral salts. The Colpa of Tambopata Amazonia Peru. This is one of the great clay walls that reaches approximately 70 meters / 164 feet high, 500 meters / 1640 feet. Where hundreds of birds of different colors that shine by the sun’s rays congregate, in Tambopata we have 6 very different species of macaws, such as parrots and parakeets meet every morning. Before going down on the clay lick, they have to observe for 20 to 40 minutes the predators that fly around and others perch on the trees and branches. These species are very intelligent and very faithful to their partners .

Descriptions

Amazon Wildlife Tambopata Macaw 

Within the Tambopata National Reserve and 150 km / 93 miles from Puerto Maldonado. The clay lick is a place where macaws congregate, formed along the banks of the river due to certain erosion processes that allowed the formation of soil rich in mineral salts. It is approximately 50 meters / 164 feet high, 500 meters / 1640 feet long and is considered the largest in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest.

Amazon Wildlife Macaw Clay Lick 4 days

Every morning six different species of macaws, parrots and parakeets gather there. These colorful birds fly around the clay lick before beginning the “colpeo”, which consists of eating the clay that is on the cliff and serves as a nutritional supplement. After staying there for twenty-five to thirty minutes, they fly back the next day. From time to time, Brazilian tapirs, capybaras and squirrels go there. At the top of the trees, you can see different species of monkeys like the red howler, caupuchin, titi and sometimes even spider monkeys.
The Peruvian region of Tambopata, in the Amazon basin, is the only area in the world where parrots and macaws gather hundreds of people to eat mud from the mud cliffs of the riverbank. Biosphere Expeditions is working on a unique project to protect them: Peruvian nature.

 

Tourist Information – Amazon Wildlife Macaw Clay Lick

As for clay licks, Madre de Dios is related to the number of Latin American licks that exist in its territory, and for having one of the largest in the world, located in the Tambopata National Reserve, called Collpa Colorado. Lick licks are usually associated with macaws, however, many mammals also attend licks located in the forest. It thus becomes a source of meat for local communities and native populations.

Birds and mammals that congregate on clay lakes consume soil containing these natural formations to supplement their diet and eat catalyzed acids in their bodies by eating unripe fruit.

One thing that few know is that there are also palms called licks. In this case, the dry trunks of the palm trees provide the macaws with mineral salts that have gained ground throughout their lives.

Some even investigated this case that occurs in the vicinity of Lake Sandoval, also within the Tambopata National Reserve. Finally, clay licks are also known to attract thousands of tourists to the Madre de Dios and are fascinating places to investigate wildlife.

MACAW CLAY LICK CHUCHO PERU NATURE.

Soil consumption (also known as geophagy) is very common among mammals around the world and the chuncho peru nature. A wide variety of mammals eat land, including wild and domestic ungulates, rodents, and primates (including humans). In fact, there are land-eating mammals on every continent except Antarctica. Among birds, geophagy is less well known and intensive scientific study much less common. Parrots and pigeons are the most common avian soil consumers, but a large number of game birds (Galliformes) and perching birds (Passeriformes) that consume soil have also been recorded on this trip to Peru nature chuncho. The common feature of most ground-feeding vertebrates is that they feed almost exclusively on plants. As a result, you will rarely encounter feral cats, hawks, or other ground-eating predators. A wide variety of reasons have been proposed for animals to eat soil. I will focus here on the three most widely accepted theories: grist, mineral supplementation, and adsorption of dietary toxins. Many birds are known to eat small pebbles or gravel to help them grind up the hard seeds in their diet. This includes robins, game birds, and others (Best and Gionfriddo 1991). These species ingest relatively large particles (0.5 mm in diameter) that remain in the muscle gizzard where grinding occurs. However, evidence suggests that the parrots and pigeons I studied in Peru do not consume the soil as grit because the birds choose the finer clays with particles too small to aid in grinding (Brightsmith and Aramburú 2004; Gilardi et al. 1999). ). Another common explanation for why animals consume soil is

Mineral supplementation of this finding in the nature macaw of Peru, chuncho. In general, nutrients are often scarce in many ecosystems. In particular, sodium is often cited as a major reason animals eat soil. In fact, in temperate zones, most geophagy sites are called salt licks. Sodium is scarce in the diets of herbivorous animals because it is found in low concentrations in most plants. In fact, many plants actively prevent the absorption of sodium. However, sodium is vital for a wide variety of animal functions, including the maintenance of osmotic balance, nerve transmission, etc. For this reason, humans and other animals exhibit such strong cravings for sodium and actively seek it out. In Peru, studies on Peru, the macaw, clay, lama, chuncho, show that parrots have diets with extremely low concentrations of sodium and that these birds eat the soils with the highest concentrations of sodium (Brightsmith and Aramburú 2004; Gilardi et al. al. 1999). (nature peru) clay macaw licks chuncho.

Most plants contain toxic defense chemicals that work to prevent animals from eating them. Many of these toxins are well known to people, including caffeine, nicotine, tannins (which make wine and tea look dry), digitalis, cocaine, opium, etc. In high concentrations, many plant chemicals can be fatal. Many of these compounds occur in the seeds and unripe fruits that make up the bulk of parrot diets. As a result, parrots consume a large amount of toxic substances every day. Work done at the University of California, Davis by James Gilardi has shown that clays consumed by parrots in southeastern Peru can bind to certain types of toxic chemicals and prevent their absorption by the parrots. In this way, soil licking clay can help protect parrots from toxins in the seeds they eat. In summary, scientific evidence suggests that Peruvian Parrots do not eat soil for litter, but do consume soil which provides an important source of dietary sodium and helps neutralize plant toxins in their diet. In this article, I provide data on the seasonal patterns of clay lacquer use by parrots at the Tambopata Research Center. I then show how parrot ‘migrations’, reproduction and diet may be interacting to produce these seasonal changes in lick use.
Study site: The study was conducted at the Tambopata Research Center, an ecotourism lodge run by Peruvians,
