The lodges of the Tambopata region offer visitors the chance to observe flocks of colourful macaws, parrots and parakeets with ease. Large naturally formed clay licks attract these birds in huge numbers, as they come down to feed on the mineral-rich soil. The result is one of the most-eye catching natural spectacles a visitor can enjoy here. Across the different clay licks, a number of varieties of birds can be seen, including Dusky-headed, Cobalt-winged and White-eyed parakeets, Mealy, Yellow-crowned, Orange-cheeked and Blue-headed parrots, Chestnut-fronted Macaws and many more.
