Rescued blue crown - relentless screaming
Blue Crown Conure
I recently adopted a blue crown conure that was seized during a drug raid... I suspect that he was wild at one point, because when he hears other parrots outside he starts running all over his cage and doing his flock call. He's also very antisocial, whenever I move around in my room he runs to the far corner of his cage. He's also got a broken wing(evidence of either abuse or somebody caught him in their front yard.)
That's not so much the problem though, my problem is that whenever his cage is uncovered and can see light, he starts screaming and will not stop unless I put the towel back over his cage or turn the lights out and cover the windows. I work nights so I have to do this a lot or else he keeps me up all day and gives me a splitting headache. I don't like to do this to him though, it doesn't seem right but it's my only choice aside from giving him away because he's 'disabled'
Now that I've explained the situation, my question: Is there a way to get a bird to stop the violent screaming in a kind way, or is this something you can't quite train.

The picture is from one of the times I had the top of his cage open and he decided to jump off. He wouldn't get in my hand so I had to take a dowel and hold it in front of him to lift him back inside.
