It was first described by Charles Lucien Bonaparte in 1856. The Lear's Macaw is 70–75 cm ( ) long and weighs around 950 g . It is metallic blue with a faint, often barely visible, tinge of green, and a yellow patch of skin at the base of the heavy, black bill. This macaw is rare with a highly restricted range.
