  • Kay asked on the “Birding as a Competitve Sport topic if the macaws are easy to see here. The answer is YES! That is why Tambopata is one of the top birding destinations in the world. Many species of macaws, parrots and other birds are found here and the clay lick has them all flocking togther. It’s a sensory overload where you don’t know where to look first!
