Green check conure

My green check conure is 1 years old. He is supposedly a male. He has a habit of lifting his back feathers up and he tries to push his rear end up against something. He will just sit then and relax that way. He tries to do it to my arm, his toys in his cage, pretty much anything. Can you explain why he is doing this?

Dr B has answered this before, you bird is exhibiting sexual behavior. You do not want to encourage this behavior. You can not stop what the bird does in the cage, but when the bird is with you do not pet the bird down it's back and if it starts to rub on you, put the bird back in the cage.
