Parakeet clay lick

A fifteen minute boat ride and sixty minute hike from Refugio Amazonas will take us to a completely different clay lick used both by parrots and parakeets.  We will watch from a blind as parrots and parakeets descend to ingest the clay on a bank. Species such as Dusky headed and Cobalt winged Parakeets come to this clay lick. With luck we will also see some or all of the following species in the early morning rush: Mealy and Yellow-crowned Amazons, Blue-headed Pionus, Chestnut-fronted (Severa’s) Macaw, and Orange-cheeked (Barraband`s) Parrot. We visit the lick at dawn, when parrots are most active, or in midmorning or early afternoon. This activity takes about three hours.
