Message:WE ARE STILL STRUGGLING WITH GETTING HIM TO TRUST US. I WORK NIGHTS, SO WHEN I GET HOME IN THE MORNING I TAKE HIS COVER OFF AND TALK TO HIM. HE HAS A PERCH BY THE WINDOW, AND HAS STARTED TO FLY TO IT SEVERAL TIMES A DAY. HE STILL TRIES TO BITE ME EVERYTIME I TRY TO GET HIM TO STEP UP ON MY FINGER, ARM, OR SHOULDER. THIS MORNING HE TRIED TO BITE ME WHEN I GOT HIS FOOD BOWL OUT OF HIS CAGE TO REFILL IT. HE HAS NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE. WHEN HE GETS ATTENTION, HE IS VERY ATTENTIVE AND TALKS, BUT FREAKS OUT IF I TRY TO TOUCH HIM. HE WILL SIT ON TOP OF HIS CAGE AND WATCH THE WORLD GO BY, AND DOESN'T MIND IF YOU SIT NEXT TO HIM AND TALK TO HIM, BUT NO TOUCHING. I TRIED PUTTING ON A LEATHER GLOVE WHEN I TRY TO HANDLE HIM, BUT IT SEEMED TO SCARE HIM EVEN MORE. ANY SUGGESTIONS?
