"4 months ago I adopted a blue front amazon from a friend of my daughter. She adopted him as a rescued bird after a brush fire and had him about 12 years. Not exactly sure of his age but she thinks he was 3-5 when she got him. While she had him he spent a large amount of time in his cage and was sometimes teased by the teens that lived nearby. I have him out of the cage and on a play stand most of the day and he gets frequent attention. It has been slow but we are to the point where he will sit on my arm and he has recently started sitting on my shoulder. He does have a thing about biting. We will be fine and then totally out of the blue he will bite and not want to let go. He has bitten onto my arm several times and then earlier this weekend he was on my shoulder and bit onto the upper part of my ear and would not let go. Then tonight, he was sitting on my knee while I was scratching his head and talking to him and he bit my finger. I put him on a pirch and was moving him to his play stand so I could bandage my finger and he went after my arm and would not let go. I don't yell at him or throw him when he bites, but usually put him either onto the play stand or in his cage for a time and talk to him. What else can I do to stop the biting?"
