Abstract Macaw behaviour: Red-and-green macaws (Ara chloropterus) are one of the most commonmembers of the parrot family observed at large, riverside claylicks insouth-easternPeru.Although considered common and widespread in aviculture, little is known about their socialinteractions in the wild. Claylicks provide anideal setting at which to study wild birdbehaviour,with the caveat that the claylick itself may impact on social interactions. We observed macawsaround two claylicks in the lowland Amazon. Macaw behaviour differed significantly on thesurface of the claylick compared to the surrounding vegetation. The position of a bird in thesurrounding vegetation may also influence behaviour, with the canopy level associated morewith preening and inter-pair bonding interactions like allopreening. Aggression increasescloser to, and on the claylick, although a high degree of submissiveness appears toaccommodate bird proximity on the claylick itself. Whether aggression is a characteristic ofindividual macaws, or whether these interactions help establish a dominance hierarchy amongthe local population of macaws is unclear at this stage. In comparison to a control group ofscarlet macaws observed around nesting sites, macaws at the claylick appeared to bebothered less by insects. Playing, preening and aggression were all observed more around the clay lick compared to birds around nests. Lower vigilance and a comparable number ofaggressive interactions at a site with fewer red-and-green macaws and more scarlet macawsappears to indicate the interactions of these speciesas a “super flock” at this site. Ofconservation concern, it appears that a smaller proportion of birds will feed when there arefewer than ten macaws in the area of the claylick, highlighting the vulnerability of these sites tohuman and other disturbance. We suggest further studies of macaw claylicks to determineseasonal changes in behaviour; the role of claylicks in the social structure of the macaws; andhow these interactions are influenced by disturbances factors such as passing boat traffic.
