2yo male lunging and biting favorite person

I am wondering if someone might be able to help with a new situation that has arisen with our beloved male Ekkie.
My wife is, by far, our little guys favorite person but he has begun to lunge at her for what seems to be no reason. He is generally a happy, healthy bird and we have few, if any problems with him. That said, we have noticed two patterns; one is that he will lunge at her if she is using her phone and two her doesn't like it when she is cleaning.. What's even more strange is that he will not act the same way toward me when I am doing those things.
So far this am, he has been particularly ornery. He has flown over to my wife's shoulder, only to lunge/strike at her cheek and ear, as well as walk up to her while she was sitting on the floor and lunge at her for what seems like no reason.
We want to make sure we are not unintentionally reinforcing these behaviors, but are not sure what to do, or not do, given we don't understand his actions.

Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.
