A Pandemonium of Parrots by Timothy Devane: 3 species of Macaws (Blue/Yellow, Scarlet and Red/Green) on Sejali Clay Lick, Mishagua River, Peru. Macaws congregate to ingest clay rich in minerals and possibly to neutralize toxins of fruits and seeds they eat. #Macaws #Clay_Lick #Peru #Timothy_Devane
SPOTTED PARDALOTE (Pardalotus punctatus) - one of the smallest of all Australian birds at 8 to 10cm in length, and one of the most colorful. They nest in deep horizontal tunnels drilled into banks of earth. Externally about the size of a mouse-hole, these can be very deep, a meter or more.
