A sweet fluffy cockatiel, or a deadly bird of prey?

We had a lazy Sunday this week. I hope you enjoy the video as much as Achilles is enjoying the rain.

Biting Behaviors: Predicting, Preventing and Replacing

"I have an almost four months old quaker parrot. He's very friendly and is not afraid of people. He gladly steps up to come out of the cage. He'll go up to you but when he's on your shoulder or hand he'll nip you HARD. I can't say he's being aggressive. He doesn't seem angry or stressed, he just pinch your skin so hard, its almost impossible to let him stay on you. He's fully flighted and he will follow me everywhere I go. What should I do to make him stop the nipping." - user Struckbygold
