Amazon Parrot and Parakeet Watching

After our 5:30am wake-up knock, we hiked down to the clay lick again. The early morning is a good time to see birds. We were inside a little hut covered in leaves, to hide us from the birds. There were small holes to look through. For the first twenty minutes there was nothing. Just a bunch of tired people sitting silently in a shack on the bank of the Amazon river.

Finally, a few blue-headed parrots arrived on the scene, followed by some green parkeets, and one blue and green macaw. They were still a little far away, so you need to look though binoculars or the telescope to see well. Michelle took some photos, some oft them actually through the lens of the telescope. Eventually there were a lot of birds and they became noisiy with their calls.

Just before we left, a few of us were lucky enough to see a few Canaberra appear on the clay lick, the large Amazonian rodents.
