The body, tail, and wings are dark blue and the head is a slightly paler shade. It has an area of pale-yellow skin adjacent to the base of its beak, and orange-yellow eye rings. It has a large, blackish beak and dark grey feet. The hyacinth macaw can be distinguished by its darker plumage, lack of greenish tinge, and a differently shaped patch of yellow skin adjacent to the base of the bill.

The glaucous macaw is paler and has a more greyish head. In addition, when danger is found on these hunts for new territory, the macaws let out their signature call which can be heard for miles. The macaw can reach flight speeds up to 35 miles per hour to escape predators or poachers.

However, not all pairs of birds mate often or at all. Juveniles reach sexual maturity around 2—4 years of age. Distribution and habitat Edit For over a century after it had been described, the whereabouts of the wild population was unknown. It was eventually rediscovered in by ornithologist Helmut Sick in Bahia in the interior northeast of Brazil.

This habitat , while never plentiful, is currently estimated to be around 1. Cattle that live near its nesting grounds often stand on the roots of young licuri palms, killing them, so causing a large loss of food for these birds.

In fact, though the lifespan of these palms can be 30— years, most trees do not make it over 8—10 years. To nest there, they apply their saliva to the sandstone which softens it, then excavate small crevasses using their beaks and scrape the dust out of their soon-to-be nests with their feet. Conservation status Edit In , the global population was estimated to number just 60 birds. Various conservation organizations under ICMBio, along with local ranchers and other independent organizations, are working to help conserve the species.

The committee includes Brazilian and international organizations and individuals. In , the conservation status of the species was downgraded to endangered from critically endangered by the IUCN.
