Amazon Wildlife 3days/2n.- Easier said than done. Aside from insects, the creatures of the jungle are an elusive bunch, and unlike along the river bank, where on the way up we had spotted several breeds of monkey, Macaw, Black-and-white Caiman, as well as a family of over-sized, guinea pig-like Capybara, within the rainforest you need the eyes of a Harpy Eagle to spot as much as a squirrel. This is no photo-safari in Amazon Wildlife.
Travel to Amazon Widlife.- Adventure and Kept awake only by dint of the mosquito bites sustained overnight, I suddenly spy the orange coat of a Howler Monkey hanging upside down in a tree, no more than 10 feet away of amazon.[tabs class=”yourcustomclass”] [tab title=”Summary Tours Amazon Wildlife ” active=”active”]
Amazon Wildlife – Tambopata 3 days
Macaw & parrot survey – Amazon Wildlife: Work was conducted at the Las Piedras Biodiversity Station on the Las Piedras river, south eastern Peru into macaw and parrot activity at clay licks and their distribution patterns in the surrounding forest in terms of forest type – Amazon wildlife. This study supports the work of previous studies which show that parrots and parakeets feed mostly in the early morning (before 07:00), while large macaws feed later in the morning (around 09:00) – Amazon wildlife.
Parrot and macaw feeding can occur at several closely located clay licks simultaneously in Amazon wildlife. Parrot feeding activity is affected by a variety of sources of disturbance, including weather (especially fog), vultures, birds of prey, and boat traffic. Birds arrive at clay licks in smaller groups than are observed departing due to the effect of antipredator activity (or flushing). While waiting to feed, birds engage in a variety of preening and social preening behaviours – Amazon Wildlife. Trends in encounter rates during afternoon censuses for dusky-headed parakeet, blue-headed parrot and red-and-green macaw matched trends in feeding activity observed at the clay lick for the period of the study. More encounters with birds were obtained in floodplain forest compared to terra firme and seasonal swamp forest – Amazon Wildlife.
The floodplain forest also had the highest fruit index, mostly due to the large number of fruiting palms – Amazon Wildlife. This study highlights the problems associated with censusing parrots in the afternoon, comparing three commonly used census techniques (long watch, variable circular plots and variable distance line transects). A relative index based on call frequency should not be used to compare relative abundance between species as call volume and frequency strongly biases results towards larger and more vocal species (Amazon wildlife).
Mammal survey – Amazon Wildlife: This study is part of a longer term investigation into the impacts of logging and associated subsistence hunting on mammalian populations in forest adjacent to the Las Piedras river, southeast Peru, and reports on data collected during the first three years. Data were collected using standardized line-transect census techniques for 16 species of medium to large bodied mammals and four species of hunted birds. Preliminary results show increases in abundance for many of the bushmeat species suggesting that hunting reduced population abundance, but not to an extent that made recovery impossible (Amazon wildlife).
Caiman survey – Amazon Wildlife: Caimans are a genus of crocodilian found throughout the Amazon basin. Numbers of caiman, particularly white caiman (Caiman crocodilus), also known as spectacled caiman, and black caiman (Melanosuchus niger) have been declining in recent years due to overhunting for their skins and meat by humans – Amazon Wildlife. Both species are now listed on CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species). This project surveyed the local population of caimans along a section of the Las Piedras river, southeast Peru and found white caiman to be the most abundant species, with an abundance of 4.93 individuals per kilometre. The survey also made an attempt to map individual territories (Amazon wildlife).
