Parrot flying to me

Heyy
My amazon is flighted and even if he bites he wants to be al the time with me.
But, I canít do ANYTHING, I walk 1 meter away from him he flies and come on my shoulder, my head or finger. (And he bites me of course).

Any idea of how to teach him to stay perched somewhere??

Re: Parrot flying to me

Station training, which is basically teaching him to "stay put". You reward him for staying where-ever it is you want him to stay. However, you also need to keep him pre-occupied with toys and foraging activities. It will take time, but it's doable!

Re: Parrot flying to me

What do you do when he flies to you (immediately after)?

Re: Parrot flying to me

If one of my bird fly’s to me when I don’t want the company I just duck/squat down and they fly back where they came from.

This made me laugh. So cute to picture! I'm reading this because I'm starting to have trouble with mine flying to me constantly or getting in trouble about the house. But no biting, just loves, biting really takes it up a notch for sure!
