Short description of the Amazonian Clay Lick -Macaw

Macaws :In native language, Macaw means, “that who cries along the river”. They are highly intelligent animals and can live up 50 or 60 years old.. There are sixteen species in total. Six species are extinct, while eight species are at present in danger of extinction as well.
Macaws have big reproducing problems. It takes 5-6 years for a macaw to reach reproductive age. Then, only 10-20% of adult mated pairs attempt to nest in any given area. Of these, roughly 35% fail completely to raise a chick. In another 40%, only one chick survives, because the parents always take more care of the first chick.

OVERVIEW

AMAZONIAN CLAY LICK TAMBOPATA :Amazon Clay Lick , where the Endless expanse of tropical forest below is broken only by twisting rivers and an occasional savanna. More clearings become evident as we approach the frontier town of Puerto Maldonado, at the juncture of two rivers: the Tambopata Amazonian Clay Lick , ecotourism. We could start seeing Amazonian Clay Lick birds even . Red-breasted Blackbirds, Gray breasted Martins, Saffron Finches, Chestnut-bellied Seedeaters, and Yellow-browed Sparrows are more common in the open areas around town than in the rainforest to which we’re headed.equivalent with any essentials you want with you on the boat, to include your water and rain gear, as well as a long-sleeved shirt. You should be dressed for birding with hat and sunscreen on. From the Puerto Maldonado airport well be transferred to the Amazonian Clay Lick , Snacks will be available too, and recommended, as we plan to take a bus to the Infierno dock, a 45-minute drive, before loading into our boat where our lunch awaits us. And we won’t drive straight; we will want to stop for some birding along the way. At the “port” well board our covered, motorized dugout for the trip to Amazonian Clay Lick a little over an hour up the Rio Tambopata. Once aboard well be seeing White-winged and White-banded swallows flying over the water and an occasional pair of Drab Water-Tyrants hugging the banks. Check the sandbars (if water levels are such that there are Sandbars) for Pied Lapwing and Collared Plover, and watch for aerial Large-billed and Yellow-billed terns. Well plan to have a late lunch aboard our dugout as we ride. Along this stretch of river, we’ll pass many small farms and clearings where colonists have been living for a long time. But we’ll begin to see a few areas of undisturbed forest, green walls of vegetation against the bank. By now there should be noisy flocks of parakeets dashing overhead. Check exposed perches for raptors, Roadside Hawk being the most common and conspicuous, but Bat Falcons, King Vultures, hawk eagles, and even a Harpy are among the possibilities. Never knowing what may be around the next bend is part of the suspense of river travel in Amazonian Clay Lick From the riverbank landing (“the port”), we climb the steep cut bank and then onto older terraces of the river, reachingerra firme forest at the top. It’s a twenty-minute walk to the lodge, and we’ll have a welcome drink and an orientation session upon arrival. Well get settled into our simple but well-designed rooms and then meet to bird the nearby forest and clearing edge in the late afternoon. There’ll be lots to see close at hand, and we may want to try for Tawny-bellied Screech-Owl very near our cabins at dusk. we’ll receive a briefing about the reserve and the ecotourism project Amazonian Clay Lick over dinner and then sleep tonight to the diverse and exciting sounds of the rainforest night. Amazonian Clay Lick area. Depending on the most recent information about any known nests, we will make Harpy Eagles our first priority, devising a plan with our local guide to pursue them. Should there be no active nest known, we will nonetheless take advantage of our proximity to some wonderful terra firmer forest trails, to the 115-foot canopy tower, to the best accessible bamboo stands in these parts, and to the beautiful oxbow lake at Tress Chimbadas. Weʼll have three full days and an early morning to work in all the birding we’d like to do from this comfortable base. Certain raptors, parrots, toucans, puff birds, barbets, coting as, flycatchers, tanagers, and some rarely seen hummingbirds are more easily viewed from the canopy than from the floor of the towering rainforest. And it seems, each canopy tower offers different strengths. Our experience with this one (only a twenty-minute walk from the lodge), indicates particularly good potential for close looks at raptors and fruit-eating species. Besides Crested and Harpy eagles, raptors we’ve seen from the tower include: Gray-headed Kite, Slate-colored Hawk, Black and Black-and-white hawk eagles, and King Vulture. We have seen relatively few mixed-species canopy flocks, but we have seen lots of macaws and parrots in this part Amazonian Clay Lick (including some that are rarely seen near the big macaw lick: eye-to-eye Black-capped Parakeets, White bellied Parrots, and Dusky-billed Parrot lets; and an occasional flock of Scarlet-shouldered Parrot lets flying past right Below), both big toucans, Golden-collared Toucans, and Ivory-billed, Curl-crested, Lettered, and Chestnut-eared araucarias at close range. It’s a good place to see Amazonian Pygmy-Owl, Striated and White-necked puff birds, Bare necked Fruit crows, several species of trogons, wood creepers, and woodpeckers, as well as a variety of flycatchers and tanagers, honeycreepers, and dacnises. Of course, our luck with fruit-eaters and with canopy hummers (such as Black bellied Thorn tail) will depend on what happens to be in fruit and flower near the tower whre we will see the Amazonian Clay Lick.

DAY 1: PUERTO MALDONADO –  AMAZONIAN CLAY LICK TO CHUNCHO LODGE

We pick you up from the airport/coach terminal of Puerto Maldonado to take you to our office first where you can leave your things unnecessary for the trip, but you need to bring a backpack for your personal items and more.  Then, you get on our private vehicle to take you for an hour ride following a dirt road watching changeable nature along the way such as diverse forest types, traditional farms cultivating bananas and citruses, cattle farms, streams, etc.

Then, we get to the Native Community of Infierno where the port of Puerto Nuevo is situated. We board a motorboat there and navigate for about 2 hours observing wildlife around the river banks, especially birds such as herons, a jabiru, a macaw, a kingfisher as well as some mammals, e.g. a capybara and a tapir. We can also spot white caimans and turtles resting on the banks. Then, we get to our lodge called Chuncho Lodge where we accommodate ourselves, have lunch and a short rest as well.

The lodge is located on the banks of the river, in the beginning of the Tambopata National Reserve, which is rich in fauna and flora; that we explore just after the rest. Now we are given the opportunity to see lizards or colorful butterflies, birds such as quail,  Toucan or wild turkey as well.  You will see thousand year old trees such as almendrillos (Diptery Odorata; reaching up to 50 metres), chiguaguacos or lapunas!  We then return to the lodge for dinner.

We start our todays expedition very early in the morning with breakfast and heading out for the very heart of the Tambopata National Reserve – Collpa Colorado (collpa means clay-lick). So we sail upstream the Tambopata River for six hours.

During the ride, we can admire the intensive and genuine wildlife of the rainforest´s reserve! Upon arrival to the Colorado clay-lick, we set a campsite there as tonight is dedicated to macaw and other animal observation! The clay-lick is a reddish earthy cliff containing clay and veins of mineral salts that help the digestive systems of various animals, mostly macaws and parrots so that they come in flocks every morning to eat this nutritional source. We spend the night at the campsite.

DAY 3: AMAZONIAN CLAY LICK OF COLORADO AND CHUNCHO – CAMPSITE

We wake up at 5 am. to walk to a viewpoint at the clay-lick that enables us to better see this unique and unforgettable “show” full of colors and sounds! Flocks of macaws, parrots, parakeets and other animals come to eat between 5 am and 9 am.

When the show finishes, we get on our boat and sail downstream for 3 hours to get to another clay-lick – the famous Collpa de Chuncho! There, we set our next campsite and have lunch. Afterwards, we start an exploration walk around and we may do some fishing as well.  Overnight at the campsite.

DAY 4: AMAZONIAN CLAY LICK OF CHUNCHO  LODGE

Another 5 am wake-up awaits us as we go to the Collpa de Chuncho to watch animals going to get some nutrition! Then, we return to the campsite and after a break and lunch, we board the boat again navigating downstream for 3 hours until we get back to the Chuncho Lodge.

Optional: A night caiman observation in the Tambopata River.

DAY 5: AMAZONIAN CLAY LICK – PUERTO MALDONADO
