My Green-Winged Macaw has been with me just 6 months since adoption from the rescue but check out the progress she has made! She not only steps up but let's me grab her, flip her over, open her wings, and put on a harness.
It doesn't really matter if a parrot comes from a breeder, store, or rescue, with the right approach any parrot can be super friendly like my parrots. Learn about my approach to parrot training that leads to such fantastic results in my book, The Parrot Wizard's Guide to Well-Behaved Parrots. http://ParrotWizard.com/Book

There are lots of myths and misunderstandings associated with training outside freeflight for birds. This video shows how Neena, a non-professional, works with her pet parrots on outdoor freeflight. She has recently moved to California and adopted two Blue and Gold babies.
Her birds don't want to "escape" or "run away," and hawks aren't the biggest danger outside for pet parrots...
============================== For those who are inspired to have flighted birds...this video states the facts...
If you want your bird to fly outside, it takes a lot of time, work, and you SHOULD HAVE AN EXPERIENCED MENTOR!
If you are impatient to get started, then do get started with INDOOR flight training.
