Mexican military macaws live in small flocks of up to 20 individuals. To roost they congregate in flocks of up to 500 individuals. Nest cavities made by woodpeckers are often used for nesting, otherwise rock crevices on cliffs are preferred. Seasonal migration occurs, which even entails flying over high mountains.
