Cockatiel doesn't want back in cage!
Most people seem to have questions about getting their parrot out of the cage. My problem is getting him back IN. Reggie, my 'tiel is about 4 months old. He was handfed and is very friendly. I take him out 3 or 4 times a day but lately when it's time to go "back home", he will flap his wings and lightly tap me with his beak. It's not a hard bite, just enough to let me know he wants to stay out.
He does have toys he enjoys in the cage. Whenever he is out he only wants on my shoulder, rarely perching on his playstand. I don't want to make him mad at me but hate having to fight him when playtime is over.
Any advice for a first time bird owner on this matter would be most helpful.
