      How old is that bird. Seems to be a baby since you're hand feeding it but it's pretty big. I have a 3 month old he is now fully feathered but not that big…yet. he seems to free fly fine in the house and respond to my calls but outside not so much…easily distracted

      Just so everyone knows, baby macaws are some of the easiest birds to train for free flight. Even so, there is a LOT that can go wrong if you don't know what you're doing. I hope everyone takes this as a snapshot of one person's process for training his birds rather than a "how to" guide. Please don't attempt this yourself without an experienced mentor or there is a very good chance you will lose your bird.

      Somehow I got here … Humm he is definitely not a bird whisperer or a behaviourist. There is thing called thin ice, he is getting away with it through blind luck, not methodology or understanding. It is rather a misuse of trust. Anyway back to my lovelies.
