Post: Angry at My Amazon

    I had 3 parrots, now 4, a 9 month old Blue Front that I've
    had for 5 months. This 4th parrot is MY FIRST Amazon. I
    have treated her very nicely but I really hate some of her
    nasty behavior. I am looking for advice on what to do. She
    is outside a lot on her big perch. For whatever reason, she
    seems to get in bad (very nasty) moods. I will simply give
    the step up command, and she goes hard for my finger or
    hand. Other times she is perfectly fine. I am not sure
    what to do when she attacks my hand. I don't want to act
    scared as it will only make her more aggressive. I talk to
    her trying to be close and gently yet firm and she goes for
    my face. I believe she would bloody my face if allowed. I
    hate this behavior and I get angry. I don't understand the
    behavior and I don't like a bird who tries to bite
    especially while still less than a year old. In
    desperation, I have resorted to bumping her large perch in a
    way that knocks her off. Then she is very willing to let me
    put her on my finger from the ground. It works but it's no
    way to live. Can anyone offer suggestions on how to have a
    loving relationship with this type of bird?
