Re: pre-free flight training

Yes, macaws can be trained to handle a lot of stimuli. I've seen successful free flying macaws in the middle of a busy downtown shopping area (cars, people, etc), inside a noisy exhibition hall, active construction sights of tall buildings, etc.

They can; however, you really have to keep up with that stimuli training and it's best you've two to flock together. If one gets distracted, the other can call him back. If you don't keep up with the training (I've seen people miss just a couple of days) then you risk your bird flying off.
Parront to Cairo (pronounced chai-row, or 菜肉)*!
*He grew up in a Malay-speaking family, so we have to respect his name and preferred pronunciation
