Its main morphological characteristics are its smaller size, which can reach a maximum of 86 cm and weigh between 995 and 1380g, its unmistakable colouring, being blue on its back, yellow on its belly, having a white face with black facial feathers next to its neck and the front of its head which is green in colour. It migrates at certain times of the year in search of food and travels great distances during the day. It feeds mainly on seeds, fruit and nuts. It is common in the canopy of forests, floodplains with palm trees (buritizais, babaçuais, etc.), the interior and edges of high forests, at around 500 metres above sea level. It lives in pairs or groups of 3 individuals, a combination that is also maintained when larger flocks of up to 30 individuals are formed. It is currently one of the most conspicuous large psittaciformes in the urban environment, a phenomenon known as "urban macaws". The hyacinth macaw is widely distributed throughout South America, being found in Colombia, the Guianas, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Argentina and, of course, Brazil, as well as in Central American countries such as Panama. In Brazil, this bird inhabits many biomes: from the Atlantic Forest to the Amazon and from the Pantanal to the Cerrado.
