The Pariamanu clay lick is a bank approximately ten meters high on a side arm of the Pariamanu River, where several species of parrots and macaws gather in a magical display. The most famous visitor is the red and green macaw. These birds have to gather every morning to feed on the clay before they fly off in search of fruits and seeds in the jungle. This show lasts between one and three hours and follows a specific order. Small species such as parakeets and parrotlets arrive first, then parrots appear to be eventually followed by the significantly larger macaws that bring this exceptional explosion of color and sound to a dignified close.
