Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: This is the largest macaw clay lick on earth, hundreds of macaws and parrots gather toguether to eat clay every day, the 3 large speciesof psitacis present in Peru come to this place to eat clay, they love the sunny days but even in rainy days or cloudy, they will come, may not eat the clay but will alays go to this place so is easy to watch. This clay lick warrantys all the species of large macaws, there are other clay licks in the area, each one far away of each other. But , not all of them have the visit of the 3 large species of macaws and 11 more species of parrots. With not doubt this macaw clay lick is the best in the world to watch this unique natural show in the amazon jungle.

“Wild Parrots”

I don't think I have ever seen macaws in the wild before and it was fascinating to watch them. They were swooping through the trees making a loud parrot noises.
