Mysterious and likely extinct, this large and magnificent macaw was only known from now much-reduced open grassy habitats with substantial palm stands. Very similar in appearance to Hyacinth and Indigo Macaws (neither of which overlap in range), but notably more greenish overall, with a grayish head and bare yellow skin around the eyes and at the base of the lower bill. Remoteness of habitat, combined with persistent reports by local communities, suggest that this impressive species may still persist, albeit in extremely low numbers.
