We had to wake up at 2 am to navigate the river guided only by the light of the moon. The jungle in Tambopata, Peru was quiet and dark. Our goal was to see the Aras eating clay very early in the morning. When we arrived at our destination after almost three hours down the river, we tried not to make any sound as these beautiful birds could get scared and they would never show up.
Unfortunately, we were not the only people waiting for this moment, the other groups could not be quiet and kept making noises, that was so annoying. At that point, I thought that it was unlikely to happen.
Suddenly a group of colorful Aras started flying towards the hill covered with clay, it was a spectacle that I am never going to forget!
