wonderful to see so many out in the wild!

So many parrots, macaws!
As we stayed at the TRC we came here twice with a group and saw so many birds (August).
The birds were noisy and it was lovely seeing them being out in the wild and apparently so lovely. I dislike seeing them in cages!
The clay wall is pretty far away, so difficult to take good photos, but even Those who flew close to us I found difficult to photograph.

Awesome bird viewing

We saw a bunch of parrots and other birds here. Only a handful of Macaws because of the season but it was quiet and remote and a lovely experience.

Early morning spectacular

Well worth the 4.30 start to the day - breakfast near the clay lick and display of 3 different types of macaws and parrots. Capobaras near by and just missed a jaguar which two researchers had seen trying to catch - but the capobarra won this time around!

Even if you do not know anything about birds, it worth it to wake up early, assisting a the forest awakening and sun rise and watch the Macaws and other birds. So beautiful.

Ok, I will admit it...I love birds. But this place is so spectacular even in the low season for macaws that my "I am not into birds" 20-something daughter was thrilled. The first visit, the macaws covered the trees, but were spooked before they landed by a harpy eagle...which was even more exciting to me, as I have wanted to see this huge eagle for years. We came back another time after a walk around a nearby pond, and the macaws (all three large types) started to land. It was very beautiful, and my guide took spectacular slow motion videos for me. We saw mating macaws too. This was a highlight of our rainforest experience. I would love to return in high season to see the lick covered in macaws.

You must wake up early to get to this on time to see this site. I felt like I was watching a discovery channel documentary. We saw all the species of Macaws as well as species of parrots and parakeets. Well worth the time.

Definitely, this was the highlight of the day. I got to see many macaws and get amazing pics. 10/10 would wake up at 4 am again to see macaws! Bring insect repellent with you and wear a hat... there are spiders and bugs falling from the trees

What would i give to see this incredible spectacular once more! The point when those macawas just flew away was very impressive and I'm glad that we finally decided to come here to Tambopata, as we were not sure if we can make it. Even if you have to get up in the very morning, this is worth it and the package that helped us to come here with Erik's recommendation was absolute fabulous.

This is the lick at TRC, world-famous!
Dec 2017 • Family
This is the reason you stayed at TRC & came up the river 7 hours! And the reason you got up at 4 am...sigh! It wasn't spectacular the day we went, but there were always birds flying overhead or visible in the tops of trees. Pedro had a scope & was fantastic at iPhone photos with the scope, so we have a few good shots. Definitely worth the trip, though better camera shots at the Chuncho since you are closer....
