      Interesting, are there any problems with breeding macaws chasing visitors?

      Even the aviary being extremely large (just around 1/4 of it's total structure is shown in this pic) the macaws sometimes fly over people's heads, but I think they are just following their regular flying routes, cause I couldn't notice actually agressive behaviours at all... maybe because they are already very used to the people...
