Rubbing beak on cage bars
We have a yellow nape amazon parrot. He constantly rubs his beak on the bars of his cage when you talk to him directly. He is extremely intelligent, moody, loves my husband and tolerates me most of the time. Lately he seems hostile towards me and I talk to him more, give him more treats and interact with him more without holding him.
He bit me badly last week, the first time since I've been with him. My husband had him for 25 years before I came along and I've been around for 4 years...taking it slowly. What am I doing wrong. I've never been mean to him and he communicates with me often. He talks for my attention but then when I walk over to his cage and talk to him, he ignores me by scratching his beak on the bars.
What is happening. I'm confused as to how to proceed.
