CLAY LICK – MACAW BLANQUILLOIn native language, Macaw means, “that who cries along the river”. They are highly intelligent animals and can live up 50 or 60 years old.. There are sixteen species in total. Six species are extinct, while eight species are at present in danger of extinction in amazon wildlife in peru.

Macaws Clay Lick  have big reproducing problems. It takes 5-6 years for a macaw to reach reproductive age. Then, only 10-20% of adult mated pairs attempt to nest in any given area. Of these, roughly 35% fail completely to raise a chick. In another 40%, only one chick survives, because the parents always take more care  of the first chick. Clay Lick in Jungle Trips.

The surprising lack of suitable nest sites is one of the biggest obstacles. The nests are built in certain kinds of trees. For the Blue and yellow Macaws the most common site is on the top part of dead Pona palm trees. The Scarlet Macaws nest in hard wood tree holes. Macaws cannot hack out holes for nests by themselves because of their down curved bills. Thus they use holes made previously, for example by woodpeckers. Existing holes are not always abundantly available. Nesting starts in December, so macaws start to look for their favorite tree from August. Often it occurs that two couples see the tree at the same time. They may start to fight for it, sometimes until death. A fighting macaw may even go as far as to pull a competing macaw’s chicks from their nest.

To aid this reproduction process, in some areas conservation Units have built artificial nests, which are accepted by the macaws . Clay Lick .Incubation takes one month, but the hatchling will stay in the nest for three months more. The parents take turns feeding their young. These meals consist of regurgitated fruits, seeds, and even clay from nearby clay licks. Once fledged, the young macaws travel for a period of time with their parents. This is vital for the young to learn complex information such as the location of clay licks and the types and location of fruits that they can eat. Breeding macaws have a typically relatively scruffy appearance, which suggests that nesting takes a lot out of them  they   meet  in the Clay Lick in Jungle Trips.

The Macaws feed  on fruits, some leaves and flower nectar, but their ecological niche is unripe seeds. Many unripe seeds contain toxins, especially tannins, which cause stomach problems for macaws. They need o visit salt licks, rich in salts, to neutralize the toxins. In native queshua language these licks are known as Colpas  which means salty  Clay lick in Jungle Trips.

CLAY LICK – MACAW BLANQUILLO

After 11:00 in the morn¬ing, you’d think it was a dirt cliff face along the river like any other. But arrive just a few hours earlier and it’s trans¬formed into one of the most fascinating break¬fast stops in the natural world: that of the wild parrots of Peru in manu blanquillo Clay Lick It doesn’t appear on any map. Nor do tourist books mention its name. But this parrot haven, called Blanquillo, Clay Lick in the Southeastern, is perhaps one of the most rare and spectacular of all rain forest attractions. And to think our visit there was merely by chance. In fact, it was an afterthought. A pit stop between point A finds B. We – myself and two brothers Jeff and Mark – had just surfaced from the depths of Manu Na¬tional Park, a four and a half million acre Biosphere Reserve that boasts some of the most diverse and untouched fauna and flora in the world. After spending weeks in this paradise, you’d think we’d seen it all. Or at least, we thought, there would be no better place to see it. Clay Lick Blanquillo Manu Park way to our next destination: Puerto Maldonado, the capital city of Peru’s Madre de Dios jungle region, and gate¬way to Bolivia. It was said to be a place where there were parrots – even macaws Clay Lick the world’s largest parrots. A local couple was building a lodge there and we might be able to stay with them. It was all so vague, but after all, wildlife was wild¬life, and that’s what we were there to see Manu Blanquillo Clay Lick So we continued our journey down the Rio Madre de Dios from our base just downriver from Shintuya to communiti

Boats were supposed to come every day or so. But it was July and the river was low and travel was more difficult. We had been wait¬ing, bags packed, for sev¬eral days, scanning the river for any sign of a boat, dally¬ing away our time watching leaf cutter ants devour the forest and black flies de¬ our legs. And then our “ship” came in. Actually a 45 ft. motorized dugout canoe typical of river travel. And it was a miracle we even found room to sit. The middle part of the boat was stacked high with passen¬ger gear and luggage. The two ends were stacked high with people – most heading toward the small mining shantytown of Manu Blanquillo Clay Lick three days downriver, and just short of Puerto Maldonado. Like many, they were hoping to strike it rich. What mostly happens is they work like dogs mak¬ing someone else rich. My brothers found “seats” along the edge of the boat in the back by the ‘captain. ’ ’ I was shuffled to the only other available spot at the other end of the boat next to a bitter, retired policeman with gold fever, and a mother and baby who were on a diaper-changing marathon.

An eventful one-day trip turned into two before we finally reached the shores of Blanquillo. Clay Lick I think we were infinitely happier to have departed the boat than we were to have arrived at our destination.The day was hot. Bloodthirsty black flies swarmed our legs, and sweat bees, crazed by the saltiness of fresh new vic¬tims, came at us like kamikazes. We doused with Jungle Juice and made it up the embankment to a thatched hut – the only sign of civilization in sight. was another owner and would be back later. Would we like something to eat or drink? The thatched hut doubled as a “roadside” diner for travelers. We surveyed our funds. Pretty bleak. We were in dire need of a money changer. But after the boat ordeal, we deserved a decent meal. A round of Cusqueñas (the local beer), rice, fried plantains, and fresh river fish. And all for only one million Intis each (a couple of dollars).

Jungle guide 20s, ex¬plained that they had started running tours into Manu National Park and currently didn’t have a boat to take us to the clay lick just down¬stream. Our options? There was a trail at one time, he said. It used to lead to a point on the river next to the lick. A back door of sorts. Now, however, the forest had probably swallowed up the passageway. And even so, you couldn’t see much from the side of the river the lick was on. For a good view, you had to be across from it on the other side. Some time ago, he ex-plained, a film crew from Britain came out to do a documentary on the ma¬caws. They used a “blind a canoe with a camou¬flaged covering over it — to drift in the waters in front of the birds without alarming them or causing them to fly off. However, the last time he had checked, the blind was in no shape to sail. Miraculously, a pair of Peruvian scientists ap¬peared with their boat. They were study¬ing tree growth on Cocha Blanquillo, an oxbow lake a couple hundred meters inland from the river. They could take us the next morning It seemed we were getting taken for a ride here.

The Clay Lick Macaw Conservation at the Tambopata Research Center Madre de Dios, Peru. Parrots are perhaps one of the most charming and intelligent of all birds, yet they are also the most threatened. All Psittaciforme (parrot) species except four are listed in the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora – the majority of the parrots are either threatened or critically endangered with extinction. Macaws are the largest and the most spectacular or the parrots, with a geographic range stretching from northern Argentina to central Mexico, and consisting of seventeen extant species, one recently extinct in the wild and ten that are critically endangered. Macaw population decline is largely due to anthropogenic reasons of poaching and habitat alteration, and macaws have difficulty responding due to low fecundity rates. While poachers may be tempted to illegally trap macaws for their value on the black market, they are worth much more to ecotourism. Studies suggest that a single bird can bring in $100,000 in revenue during its lifetime. One such lucrative species, the Scarlet Macaw (Ara macao), causes tourists and scientists alike to flock from around the world to admire its grandeur in the wild at the Tambopata Research Center in Madre de Dios, Peru. By studying the macaws, scientists uncover valuable information about behavior, phylogeny, and breeding habits, thus enabling them to concentrate on specific conservation strategies instead of captive rearing efforts that resulted in a group of birds, coined ‘chicos,’ that cannot function normally in the wild. Macaw conservation at the Tambopata Research Center effectively combines lucrative and informative eco-tourism with scientific research that delves into the behavioral and environmental interactions of macaws, allowing for the creation of effective conservation strategies that protect wild macaw populations instead of relying on captive rearing efforts.

Amazon Fields Bird – Clay Lick

6 days / 5 nights

Amazon Fields Bird – Clay Lick: The human groups that live in association with macaws in the Amazon directly affect the population largely because of land use, but also to a lesser degree due to physically trapping birds for the pet trade or their feathers. In most cases the humans living in macaw-inhabited areas rely heavily on agriculture for subsistence, meaning that they have to clear portions of the forest to create fields to grow their crops, which include bananas, manioc, yucca, pineapple, and local fruits. The land development necessary for agriculture directly affects macaw populations, especially the Scarlet Macaws that are so dependent upon mature trees to nest in. Additionally, gold mining operations and other land use can affect the clay lick areas where macaws congregate because the mining activity physically destroys the adjacent shoreline. Another case of human interference with macaws is the example of a small clay lick near the Bolivian border of Peru that attracts critically endangered Blue­Headed Macaws (Ara couloni) and also lies on privately owned land that the owner would like to clear.[1] Such loss of critical habitat would be devastating for the population of these endangered birds, but this trend occurs throughout the macaw range. Loss of habitat is perhaps the main and also most challenging aspect facing macaws today because it continues to persist and encroach upon crucial habitat.

Manu Biosphere reserve is 242km (150 miles) NE of Cusco Manu, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve and World Heritage Site, certainly lack for distinctions and accolades. The Biosphere Reserve encompasses the least sible and explored jungle of primary and secondary forest in Peru, and it is about as as you’re likely to come to virgin rainforest anywhere in the world. In fact, it’s so r that not only did the Spaniards, who found their way to virtually every cornerof except Machu Picchu, never enter the jungle, but the Incas, who created an empire stretched from Ecuador to Chile, never conquered the region, either. The forest v, really penetrated until the late 1800s, when rubber barons and loggers set their sights it. Peru declared it a national park in 1973. Only slightly smaller than the.

THREE AREAS OF MANU RESERVE ZONE

The reserve is divided into three zones. By far the largest, Zone A is the core zone, the National Park, which is strictly preserved in its natural state. Zone B is a Buffer Zone, generally known as the Reserved Zone and set aside mainly for controlled research and tourism. Zone C is the Transitional or Cultural Zone, an area of human settlement for controlled traditional use. Accessible only by boat, any expedition to Manu is very much in the hands of the gods, because of the temperamental jungle environment; the region experiences a rainy season from December to March, and is best visited between May and August when it’s much drier, although at that time the temperatures often exceed 30°C (86°F).

For flora and fauna, the Manu is pretty much unbeatable in South America, home to 20,000 vascular plant types (one five-square-kilometer area was found to contain 1147 species of vascular plants, almost as many as in the whole of Great Britain), with over 5000 flowering plants, 1200 species of butterfly, 1000 types of bird, 200 kinds of mammal and an unknown quantity of reptiles and insects. Rich in macaw salt-licks, otter lagoons and prowling jaguars, there are thirteen species of monkey and seven species of macaw in Manu, and it still contains other species in serious danger of extinction, such as the giant otter and the black caiman (Melanosuchus www.sandovallakeamazontravel.com)

AMAZON PERU MACAWS CLAY LICK

All Macaws have large, strong bills, bright plumage and long tapered tails, but their distinguishing field characteristic is the bare patch of facial skin around the eye and beak.. The three larger species of the Amazon Peru Macaw are much brighter in color than the other two Red and Green Macaws and Scarlet Macaws are both bright crimson, but Red and Greens have no yellow feathers on their wings (Scarlet do). Blue and Yellow Macaws, as their name suggests, are bright cobalt blue and gold in the Amazon Peru

All three have (harsh crow-like calls that echo around the forest, whether in flight, feeding in fruiting trees or at the colpas, they are never quiet .Amazon Peru Macaws nest in holes in trees or in the branches of large emergent trees. Blue and Yellows are the most selective-in choosing a nest site, generally only nesting inside old Puna Palms. This is a growing problem for these spectacular birds as the bird trade has cut down many of these nest sites in the search for chicks to export. There are research programmers, however in Tambopata that erect artificial nest sites, in likely trees to hopefully safeguard the future of these incredible birds in the Amazon Peru

The two smaller in the Amazon Peru Macaw species both have mainly green plumage with blue wings. The Chestnut Flouted Macaw is distingue from the Red Bellied Macaw by having white facial skin and a reddish color on the underside of its wings and tail. The Red bellied macaw has yellow facial skin and a yellowy color under the wings and tail the red bellied macaw and chest nut are usually seen flying in the large flocks (up to twenty individuals ) in the Amazon Peru

AMAZON PERU HISTORY: Throughout in the Amazon Peru history, extravagant wealth and sordid misery are dominant themes. Fortunes were found and lost; kingdoms were defeated; peoples were enslaved and freed. Deadly diseases, fearsome creatures, hostile Indians and rapacious settlers, all within the forest’s immensity, set the stage for a fascinating and often turbulent history. Added to this, the overwhelming power of legends attracted conquistadors from halfway across the world in search of the gilded man of El Dorado, while explorers throughout the centuries have searched in vain for the women tribes of the Amazon Peru and numerous lost cities:

ORIGINS OF THE AMAZON PERU: Today the Amazon yields few of its past secrets. Unfortunately the heat, together with the damp and acid soils of the rainforest, conspire to decompose organic remains quickly before they can fossilize. Human fossils are virtually absent from the lowland regions, so we have practically no certain clues as to how and when people arrived in the area. Likewise, without animal fossils it is difficult to reconstruct ancient faunas and so we are denied the human picture in its ecological context.

Aboriginal peoples of the Americas are believed to have arrived on the continent around 15 -20,000 years ago, between the two most recent ice ages. Migrating east and southwards, the hunter-gatherers made their way across the isthmus of Central America down to South America. This wave of migration gave rise to the Olmec, Maya and A2tec civilizations of Central America which flourished from 1400BC until the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors in the early 1500s. In the eastern coastal regions and highlands of South America the Chimu and Inca, along with many other cultures, left ample architectural and cultural artefacts for us to ponder. In the last twenty years, chance discoveries and finds of stone tools and ceramics have suggested that large populations were established on the flood plains near the current city of Manaus by 3000BC. Some authorities believe humans have been in the Amazon much longer than formerly thought. David Childress, recounting The Chronicle of Akaka, describes advanced civilizations and lost cities in the Amazon dating back over 12,000 years ago.

Small mammals, the bats and rodents that venture our only at night, are much less likely to attract attention. They should not be ignored, however, as they make up the majority of the mammalian diversity in Manu, are a significant prey base for large predators, and are extremely important in maintaining plant diversity via their roles as seed dispersers and seed predators. We see ecotourism as a mean of preserving nature by providing sustainable development for the communities that live surrounding natural habitats like Manu National Park.

All told, over 27,000 square miles (70,000 km2) of the Peruvian Amazon trail has been deforested to date, an area roughly four times the size of the Manu Biosphere Reserve; 743,100 additional acres (300,000 hectares) are deforested every year within the Amazon rainforest.

MANU PERUVIAN JUNGLE: A mysterious, almost prehistoric look to the landscape is provided by the often common presence of tree ferns. They are true ferns, but they grow to the size of small trees. Small ferns are also often abundant. Mosses, lichens and ferns are some of the oldest plants on earth and interestingly, they all depend upon mobile sperm for sexual reproduction. Thus, rain has to fall to enable the plants ‘sperm to travel over the wet surfaces of the plant, with the end goal of finding an egg and reproducing. Of course this process is inextricably linked to the watery origins of these plants in Manu Peruvian Jungle with the travel agency and tourism Manu Jungle Trips to see the Amazon jungle of Peru. With cool temperatures and abundant moisture, generally there is low evapotranspiration.
