Post: Citron Cockatoo acts crazy

    I have a citron cockatoo that I have had for about 10
    months. We got her/him from a bird rescue person and were
    told that the bird was about 7 years old. We assumed
    she/he was a female due to the diminuitive size.
    Anyway, a couple of weeks ago, she started acting afraid
    of me and being very nervous around me. It is a struggle
    to get her out of the cage and she used to be always ready
    to come out and play or cuddle although I always thought
    she was a little more nervous than other parrots I have
    owned but she was always better with me than my wife in
    the past. She still is quite friendly with my wife but if
    I come around, she/he freaks out. She doesn't try to bite
    but tries to get away instead. Any ideas why??
