Short Description of the Tambopata Amazon  Nature Wildlife.

The Macaws feed on fruits, some leaves and flower nectar, but their ecological niche is unripe seeds. Many unripe seeds contain toxins, especially tannins, which cause stomach problems for macaws. They need to visit salt licks, rich in salts, to neutralize the toxins. In native quechua language these licks are known as “Copas”, which means salty clays. In Tambopata and Manu, typical areas of macaw salt licks are the (Scheelea butyracea) palm trees, known as Shebonal. Few nutrients, a high concentration of aluminium, and little organic material characterize these areas. There is poor drainage due to the high concentration of clay in the ground. Thus, during the rainy season, the areas easily get flooded and during the dry season clay bricks form.

ITINERARY TO NATURE WILDLIFE  TAMBOPATA CLAY LICK

 DAY 1:

Puerto Maldonado  to  Tamabopata Amazon Nature Wildlife .

Your guide will be waiting at the airport and take you to our office located about 5 minutes away from the city of Puerto Maldonado. Here we will record and do some last minute shopping for things we could have forgotten such as batteries or ponchos.ect.  We now take ground transportation for 2 hours then begin a journey in a motorized boat along the Tambopata River for 10 minutes to reach our lodge, on the way we can also observe many species of birds like herons, cormorants, wild turkeys, Hoatzin, vultures, kingfishers, eagles, caracaras, etc., also alligators, turtles and capybaras (the largest rodent the world) sunning on the banks of the river. Arrival at the lodge, after settling into our comfortable rooms, do a night walk where some animals are active during the night such as is possible: night monkeys, frogs, tarantulas, scorpions..etc. Return to the lodge for dinner. We sleep in our comfortable lodge.

 DAY 2:

Tambopata Nature Wildlife  to Macaw Clay lick – Fishing and Walk 

We leave our lodge very early and later arrive near the mouth of the river Malinowski. Where is located the next stall “Malinowski” control. We also have the ability to use the bathrooms or visit the interpretation center.

During our trip we will witness the change in the environment. The Tambopata now flows faster and fans at several arms that create floodplain forest covered islands, lined with large pebble beaches. Perfect for watching orinoco geese, cormorants, caimans and capybaras places.

Chuncho

The Lick Chuncho Lick is a bank of approximately ten meters of mud atop a side arm of the Tambopata River, where several species of parrots, macaws and parakeets gather a magic screen. The most famous visitor is the magnificent scarlet macaw.

These birds have to meet every morning to feed on the clay before flying in search of fruits and seeds in the jungle. This show lasts one to three hours and follows a specific order. First come the smaller species such as parakeets and parrotlets parrots appear later eventually be followed by significantly larger macaws bring this fantastic explosion of color and sound to a fitting end. Then return to the lodge for lunch, after lunch we will visit “The Cat” where we can swim in a waterfall, then we fish in this cascade. Return to the lodge for dinner. After dinner we will go with the motorized boat to see caimans and they are more visible at night using our flashlights. Return to the lodge where we spend the night at our comfortable lodge.

DAY 3:

Reserva  Tambopata Amazon Nature Wildlife  Back To Puerto Maldonado City

After breakfast we travel 10 minutes by boat, then take our ground transportation, 2 hours to return to Puerto Maldonado, from there to the airport and / or bus

Lodge

TAMBOPATA EXPEDITIONS LODGE CHUNCHO

It is one of the impressive lodges of Lodge Rainforest Expeditions on the banks of the Tambopata Reserve River, which has comfortable rooms, dining room, spa rooms, and the work of 26 Peruvian enthusiasts, of whom seven belong to the surrounding native communities. Rainforest Expeditions tells us about the excellent welcome that has had the soft adventure routes, as she calls it, and that every time foreign tourists prefer to take a kayak trip on the Tambopata River, others choose to climb to a chestnut tree Of 38 meters, and there are those who choose to ride a bicycle for a specially conditioned gauge. All this is strengthened by sightings of birds and sublime sunrises and sunsets.

Peru: Tambopata National Reserve and the Bahuaja Sonene National Park

protected area is currently under development. There are five working stations control: 1) At the entrance of Lake Sandoval on the Madre de Dios River half an hour downstream from Puerto Maldonado outboard 55hp; 2) The position on the river Huisene Mother of God in the mouth of the river Palma Real to two hours downstream from Puerto Maldonado, has a temporary checkpoint, the post Enahuipa at the Palma Real River; 3) put the Tower on the river Tambopata at the mouth of the River Tower at the beginning of the national reserve near the border with the Hell community, about three hours by outboard from Puerto Maldonado; 4) The post Malinowski, on the Tambopata River at the mouth of Malinowski River near the park boundary national, six hours from Puerto Maldonado; 5) San Antonio since the Heath River to six hours of Puerto Maldonado, two temporary shelters, the of Picoplancha and Juliaca. In the department of Puno, in the San Juan del Oro, there is an office in the town of Putina Punco, with a professional and two park rangers charged. The rangers have a rotation system at all checkpoints in the area of Madre de God. Work carried out there watching wildlife, weather and special events such as income people, illegal logging, etc.

They also conduct awareness work to neighboring residents. There is a control of the number of tourists is recorded how many entrants, who they are and how long They remain. The Rangers made two daily radio reports. For now, the protected area administration lacks enough financing to carry effective surveillance and control actions in the field. The financial resources to cover the costs of fuel, boats, engines and staff are insufficient to properly manage such a vast area Geographic. Park rangers can not make visits to communities or so patrols often as you wish by financial and logistical constraints.

DISCUSSION Tambopata Amazon Nature Wildlife – Macaw Clay Lick:

Aggregation Membership.—Clay lick use was dominated by large mixed species aggregations and all 13 psittacine species regularly joined at least one of the three types of mixed species aggregations. These aggregations were not observed away from clay licks except for casual associations of large macaws at fruiting trees (Gilardi and Munn 1998; A. T. K. Lee, pers. comm. tambopata nature wildlife – macaw clay licks).

Group sizes at clay licks were much greater than those of birds away from clay licks (Gilardi and Munn 1998) and ,1% of lick use was by lone individuals tambopata nature wildlife – chuncho macaw clay. These data suggest that birds adopt novel behavioral strategies when using clay licks.

Stratification by size was clear among the mixed species aggregations: (1) large macaws, (2) large parrots and small macaws, and (3) parakeets and small parrots (Table 1). Species may segregate by size as heavier species take flight slower, accelerate slower, and have wider turning radii making them stragglers when mixed species groups flee from aerial predators. Direct competition should also favor size stratification as aggressive interactions are common on clay licks: smaller species are usually displaced by larger species but numerically dominant smaller species can exclude larger species if the size difference is not too great (Burger and Gochfeld 2003). Thus, predation may select against larger species joining smaller ones while competition may select against smaller species joining larger ones. This may explain the relative uniformity of body size among aggregation members tambopata nature wildlife – macaw clay chuncho.

The cost of ‘false alarms’ may also be important in shaping foraging behavior and aggregation composition, as disturbances reduce foraging efficiency (Sirot 2006, Beauchamp and Ruxton 2007). Over 90% of the flights from the lick in our study had no apparent cause suggesting a high rate of false alarms. Smaller species have a higher risk of predation and expend less energy each time they fly from the lick, and should have a lower alarm threshold, give more unnecessary alarm calls, and have correspondingly higher rate of departures from the lick. Members of an aggregation often respond to alarms as a group and larger species may have greater energy expenditure when using the lick alongside more ‘flighty’ smaller species. This also favors formation of aggregations of similar sized individuals tambopata nature wildlife – macaw clay chuncho.

The coloration of the species in each aggregation was similar; the three large macaw species in flight were a mix of red, blue, green, and yellow while the large parrot and parakeet aggregations were composed predominantly of green birds with dark green, blue or black heads and primaries. The formation of homogeneous groups (in size and color) is predicted where predators attacking groups focus on visually aberrant individuals (Landeau and Terborgh 1986, Theodorakis 1989, McRobert and Bradner 1998, Hoare et al. 2000 tambopata nature wildlife – chuncho macaw clay).

The large macaws that occasionally join the large parrot aggregation are a notable exception to the tendency for visually similar individuals to join together on clay licks (see also Mee et al. 2005). However, when large macaws join the large parrots they usually do not integrate into the center of the group. Instead, they use the highest parts of the lick, ,3 m above the center of the aggregation, where the soil quality is inferior (i.e., 50 to 75% less sodium), but where they have the best chances for rapid escape (Brightsmith et al. 2008; DJB, unpubl. data). The large macaws at Tambopata Research Center spent ,10% of their total lick use in the presence of the large parrot aggregation. In addition, large macaws rarely join parrot aggregations at other clay licks and instead usually use licks during the late mornings and afternoons (Burger and Gochfield 2003; DJB, unpubl. data). Why large macaws join parrot groups is unclear, but it may be because their large size makes them vulnerable to a smaller number of raptor species, and because early morning is the only time when lick use is temporally predictable. Large macaws during the rest of the day may wait near the lick for up to 3 hrs before a group successfully initiates lick use – tambopata nature wildlife – macaw clay licks.

White-bellied Parrots were least likely to join mixed species groups and were the most visually distinct small parrot at the site. They are green with a bright yellow head when seen in flight from above and behind while all other local species are green and have green, dark blue or black heads. However, both the large macaws and Whitebellied Parrots are likely using the best of the available options for lick use and probably benefit from joining mixed species groups as even ‘oddballs’ receive protection from predators when group sizes are sufficiently large (Landeau and
Terborgh 1986 – tambopata nature wildlife – macaw clay licks).
