The plumage of the magnificent hyacinth macaw is predominately a deep cobalt blue. In natural light, the head appears to be a lighter shade of blue and has an almost iridescent quality. The word hyacinth refers to the bird's color and is defined as ‘a deep purplish blue to vivid violet.’ The hyacinth macaw's historical range included a large area of northeastern, central and south western Brazil, eastern Bolivia and north eastern Paraguay.
