Once arrived to the Macaw clay lick, you will see hundreds of parrots of different species who come to eat clay on the wall adjacent to the river. You will be accommodated in chairs where you can wait to begin one of the most beautiful natural shows of the birds in the world. You will see species of large macaws, the most colorful of America, reds and greens, blue and yellows, and the scarlet’s macaws that gather to eat clay needed in their daily diet to eliminate toxins.
