    A solution is great, but more importantly, what is the cause of
    the screaming?
    Are your birds, hungry, bored, cage-bound, etc.?
    Are they responding to screaming children? Many birds take
    their cue from their environment?
    Are they just being macaws? All birds have periods of
    vocalization and some of their sounds are offensive to the
    human ear.
    If you have several birds, they could simply be joining in
    flock "conversation" between each other.

    More details would help with a solution.
