Errors in geography 

When the smugglers parachute out of the airplane, they are over the ocean, a good distance from the island; but in the credits they are pictured floating past the funiculars going up the mountainside.

Character error 

On the runway, Marcel tells Tipa to "Pull Up!" which he does but the flaps on the plane move the wrong way, which would cause the plane to be pushed into the floor and not take off.

When Blu is standing on the makeshift light runway preparing an attempt to fly, the section of wire at the end of the runway is shown draped and absent of lights, but as he runs the wire changes, it is no longer draped and has no gap in the lights.

Factual errors 

Linda serves Blu a cup of hot chocolate at the beginning of the film. Chocolate is toxic to Macaws.

Standard Brazilian license plates are light gray with black letters. They are composed by three letters followed by four letters (i.e. ABC-1234) as opposed to the three letters/three numbers shown in the movie.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

Sulphur crested cockatoos are native only to Australia an neighboring islands, and there is no similar South American species. However Nigel is a house pet and it is plausible that the smugglers have operated in other continents.
