Peru - Chuncho Clay Lick and Refugio Amazonas - page 4 of 5

Three species of macaws at the Chuncho Clay Lick in Tambopata Reserve in the Peruvian Amazon: Blue-and-yellow, Red-and-green, and Scarlet Macaws. Our Quest group was fascinated by dozens of colourful macaws eating clay rich in minerals and salt, which give the birds important nutrients and help with digestion. 22 October 2015
