    I can NOT thank you all enough for your responses!!! You are
    WAY more helpful than the guy the bird was purchased from and
    I GREATLY APPRECIATE the help!!! I am going to take my time
    with her and hopefully she will learn to love and trust me
    like my other birds. I hold my other birds in front of her
    cage and show her that they feel safe with me and that I am
    not going to hurt her. I am so used to getting a bird that
    is "tame" and it taking a day to adjust but being fine after a
    day or two because it so desperately wants human interaction.
    I guess the macaws are different. I was also very worried
    about if I left her in her cage too long she would become
    wilder still. Any and all suggestions are so appreciated.
    thanks again!!
