Bird flying into walls

Hello,
My three month old blue and gold macaw has recently learned the joys of flying around however, she constantly flies into walls and hits herself hard. I always get worried even though she just walks it off and then tries to fly again.
Is there anyway I can help her not fly into walls? I’m doing daily training by having her fly to me and then she immediately gets a treat but she will still fly into walls.
Thank you in advance for any info/help
(Hope this is the right thread to post in!)

She'll eventually learn her surroundings and that will diminish, but in the meantime consider proving more places throughout her space for her to safely land.

I limited my birds room size while he was learning to fly so he could still learn to fly well but not get too much speed up so he didn’t do serious damage. He crashed many times before he learnt to turn duck and dive well- time and practice should sort the issue out.
