Hi hope someone can help.My friend has a cocatiel which she has had for over a year. He is a male and loves to play on the floor near the big glass sliding door. Which he can see his reflection in.
For the last couple of months when ever you walk near him while he is at the door he runs at your feet and attacks them....and I mean ATTACKS.

I know you will say keep him away from the door.But he just loves to look out at the big wide world. What can we do to stop him from attacking. he only ever dose this while at the door.

Your cockatiel has claimed this area "his" and will protect it by attacking. Don't let him near the area and find another means of seeing his reflection - or wear heavy boots (just kidding).

So, you already know the answer. Sorry but that is your only option, there is no other option for this situation. Remove him & keep him away form the door or put up with his temper. And believe me it WILL get worse if you don't keep him from the door. I have a cockatiel, been down that road.
