DISCUSIÓN 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  nature 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 amazon ). 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 rainforest nature. These data suggest that birds adopt novel behavioral strategies


when using clay licks -Rainforest Expeditions Tambopata 

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 wildlife nature: 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

Rainforest Nature Amazon Wildife

members tambopata nature wildlife – macaw clay chuncho wild nature . 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 nature alongside more ‘flighty’

smaller species. This also favors formation of aggregations of similar sized individuals tambopata nature wildlife – macaw clay chuncho amazing nature.

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 rainforest nature . 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 expedition amazon ). The large macaws that occasionally join the large parrot aggregation are a notable exception to the tendency for

It is one of the imposing lodges of Lodge Rainforest Amazon Expeditions on the banks of the Tambopata Reserve River, which has comfortable rooms, dining rooms, spa rooms, and the work of 26 Peruvian enthusiasts, of which seven belong to the surrounding native communities. Amazon Rainforest Expeditions tells us about the excellent

reception of the soft adventure routes -as she calls it-, and that every time foreign tourists prefer to go kayaking on the Tambopata River, others choose to climb a chestnut tree 38 meters, and there are those who choose to ride a bike

on a specially prepared trail. All this is strengthened with bird sightings and sublime sunrises and sunsets .

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 amazon, ,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 nature 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 in this are

nature 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) amazon peru nature.


Macaws feed on fruit, some leaves and nectar of flowers, but their ecological niche is immature seeds. Many immature seeds contain toxins, especially tannins, which cause stomach problems for macaws. They need to visit salt stones, rich in salts, to neutralize the toxins. In the native Quechua language these lips are known as “Copas”, which

means salty clays. In Tambopata nature  and .Manu amazon peru , typical areas of salt stones of macaws are the (butyracea Scheelea) palm trees, known as Shebonal. Few nutrients, a high concentration of aluminum, and little

organic material characterize these areas. There is poor drainage due to the high concentration of clay in the soil. Thus, during the rainy season, the areas are easily flooded and during the form of dry clay bricks.
