Parrotlet suddenly biting

My mum and I got out parrotlet a few months ago, and up until now he's been very sweet. He loves to snuggle up against my neck, but lately he's been nipping at my skin. I think it's more of an exploratory bite than anything, but it's quite painful. My mum and I have just been putting him back in his cage when he gets nippy, but is there a better way to get him to stop?

Any changes in behavior like this are an early indication of some kind of infection or illness. Please take your bird to be examined by an Avian Vet in your driving area. Take him only to an Avian Vet as they are the only vets licensed and trained in caring for birds.
