    help needed..
    I have purchased a double yellow headed Amazon..He
    is about 15 years old, has had a history of two previous
    male owners..and was kept in a small toyless cage..
    He flares his tail and pins his eyes.. bites and reacts
    this way only to men. Does anyone have a reason why he
    would have this reaction only to men and/or a solution to
    the problem..i have had the amazon for a little over a
    month. i can give him food and water from my hand, but
    with no offering he strikes to fiance
    can handle the bird like a baby and never has a problem..

    I would like to be able to handle the bird also.. any
    suggestions would be helpful... thank u.. greg
