First of all, Go Pats! I'm originally from MA.....Icarus's mom that is. Second, I am curious how old your bird was when you got him. Mine was a complete, nippy, scared brat who bit when I first tried to play with him on day one and two, but then he quickly came around (I played with him and interacted with him from the moment I got home til the time I had to go to bed in the first week I got him. Now I let him out of his cage to play with me or the comure for several hours a day.) He learned a bunch of whistles in one week, was stepping up, down, and making short flights to my bed, shoulder (from my hand) and would sit on my feet to get air lifted to my hands all in the second week. He was always goo about being still and perching on me but was a lot better about being touched when he was a single bird. Now, he has to be in the mood. He will gladly step up and shake hands though. Sometimes he will "turn around" on command, or dunk a ball in a bowl when he feels like it. He's cranky once in a while, but generally, he is sweet. He loves my conure. They follow eachother around and I've even seen them preen eachother or sleeping next to eachother when it's close to thier bed time and they are still on the playtop. Don't lose hope in red-rumps. Yours might not have had the best beginnings, or maybe he just didn't get nough attention daily. Mine is undere a year too....He'll be one in Jan 08. Keep trying. Maybe always keep a treat in your hand and feed him so that he knows you are nice. Good luck with him. I hope he comes around. I'm so glad that you took in a red- rump.
