African Parrot scared

Why is my African Parrot paranoid? When I get close or even my mother gets close to it(we don't know its sex) it gets loud and seems like it doesn't want to get close but after a few minutes it will get close but gets very scared. He even trembles a lot, yet my mother and I have never done anything to make it scared of us.

Scared Parrot

Some birds are just very shy and cautious. You need to spend some time just sitting by the cage talking gently to the bird first.

Take it slowly, don't rush the bird. Work hard at gaining it's trust. We have some articles that might interest you on our Parrot Training page.
