Goofs

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Nico and Pedro are singing 'Hot Wings' at the club, in the introduction of the song, Nico can be heard saying 'My Life', but neither Nico or Pedro's lips move.

Continuity 

In the beginning of the movie, during the first performance of 'Real in Rio' the yellow Macaw that baby Blu looks to has three chicks. She only throws two out of the nest then flies away with the newly flying chicks, leaving the third one in the nest.
When the bird sanctuary guard rips off his clothes and begins dancing, his wrists are bare, but when he is giving his report to the police officer, he has fluffy straps around his wrists, matching the ones he has on his ankles.
When Tulio visits Linda in Minnesota, there are two blue pens or pencils on the table. When Tulio throws Blu, the two pens or pencils have disappeared.
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.
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.

Factual errors 

Linda serves Blu a cup of hot chocolate at the beginning of the film. Chocolate is toxic to Macaws.
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.
Carnival Floats in the Sambodromo Parade are not allowed to be self-propelled. In real life they are always pushed by a crew.
Police cars in Rio De Janeiro are not numbered by just 5 digits. They consist of two digits followed by a dash followed by four digits (for example 12-1234).
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 to Australia and are unknown in South America. However Nigel is a house pet and it isn't beyond reason to for the smugglers to have operated outside of Brazil.
