He's unsure of new food but he'll usually taste it and will reply with "YUM" if he likes it. Mangoes were a HUGE hit.

It's amazing to me that he didn't completely pluck himself naked! No toys, food anxiety, poor diet...
That makes me want to cry, the food stashing. This bird was HUNGRY. I'm so glad you have him in your care.
