I was thrilled to see a variety of parrots at the Blanquillo Macaw Lick in Peru. The Red and Green Macaw, the second largest of the parrots, was breathtakingly beautiful and so much fun to paint! These parrots flock to clay licks, which contain minerals and salts essential to their diet. Red and green macaws are widespread in the rainforests, savannahs, and mangroves of northern and central South America. Their population is decreasing and extinct in some of its range, including Argentina. They are extremely intelligent and normally mate for life, living as long as 60-80 years. Macaws are messy eaters and allow plenty of seeds to fall to the forest floor, thus regenerating much of the forest growth.
