Caique biting me

I just got a caique. The first day he got up on my shoulder and was just sitting there and for no apparent reason he bit and bit hard next to my ear and would not let go. Why would he do that when he was originally letting me pick him up?

You didn't say how long you have had the bird but it does take time to train them to come to you and gain your trust. You should never let the bird sit on your shoulder for any reason as they do lash out and bite no matter how tame you think they are or how long you have had them. You could have suffered a serious injury to your ear, your face or even your eye.
