Awe, I think that's a cute name.
I can only imagine that Jim Bob is jealous of your husband. I
know how hard African Greys can bite too, your poor hubby. Is
Jim Bob usually okay with him or no? Is this a repeated
behavior? Give us a little more info on his normal behavior.
Sounds as though he may fly to him and then draws him in with
the ole head scratch stance and then strikes. We have a Macaw
that does this to women. He lifts his foot, as if to say, pick
me up and then, once they try and pick him up, he has
accomplished his bite. Has only done it once thank goodness.
