"I recently took in a Catalina macaw. Her diet was seeds, no toys in her cage, and she has been plucking due to little attention. I'm working on her diet, supplementing with avi calm, plenty of toys. My question is what is the best method to help with one sound she makes? It honestly sounds like a very loud firework going off. I have been ignoring it, but was wondering if there is something else I can do? Her normal macaw noises, though loud, I expect. This seems to be a learned noise/behavior. She does it usually when I (more so my kids) approach her and I try to engage her with a foot toy. She also does it when I have food, or when I walk away during target training/training. She does it more when on the top of her cage than when in it. (I'm trying to introduce her play stand by putting in near her cage) she shows little interest in toys. Any ideas to help with this would be greatly appreciated. Meanwhile, I have semi noise reduction earplugs. 😂"
