The Chestnut-fronted Macaw is a widely distributed and colorful resident of Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, eastern Peru and Bolivia east to Venezuela and Brazil. The Chestnut-fronted Macaw is green with a narrow dark chestnut frontal band, has a bare white facial patch, red on the shoulders, carpal area, tail and lesser underwing-coverts, blue on the primary coverts, primaries and tip of the tail and has a turquoise vent. This species has been recorded in a number of different types of habitat including seasonally flooded forest, gallery forest, swampy areas, second growth and occasionally humid lowland terra firme forest. The diet of the Chestnut-fronted Macaw is also highly variable and includes the seeds, pulp and flowers of a number of different types of plants. Unlike many other species of parrots and macaws, populations of the Chestnut-fronted Macaw appear to be stable.
