Such a pretty Budgie! Budgies do things like that Try thumb wrestling with him. He could also be in love with your thumb lol My BB whistles to my fingers and nibbles them way too much for my liking.

buy him a female budgie, so he need not be a friend with your finger.

Re: budgie in love with my finger??? ( video )

Those look like luv nibbles. I just guessing here. I think he needs a lot more attention and something else to focus on. More toys might help and I suspect it's important to rotate them so he does not get too attached to one thing. We've also started to teach him more phrases. He'll get interest in my voice more than my daughters, but he will listen to both of us and get up on our shoulder and close to the mouth to really hear what's being said. We start cycling through a handful of phrases by getting close to his outside perch and that will eventually draw him in closer. And I think they are receptive to target training.
