What wild birds?

The vet said not to feed her the nuts and gave me O3 oil supplements to give her, which she hates and won't take. I suspect a meat only diet would do her good and oddly she loves pork, salmon, tuna, beef and chicken. Lamb not so much. She's an Aratinga acuticaudata and I haven't been able to determine from googling around what exactly her true wild diet is.
