Bird with odd tongue behavior
by: Tracie

I suppose that he has been hurt by fingers previously, and is finger shy, but not sure. You might can work with the bird by teaching it an alternate behavior. We have some training articles on our Parrot Training page that may help you with this.

As far as the tongue thing, I suggest you Find an Avian Vet to examine your bird. There may be something wrong at the base of his tongue and this is his way of dealing with it.
