    My lovebird went through a biting "teenager" phase.... just
    had to bear with it, and also, firmly telling her "No
    Biting!" til she learned what it meant. Catch him before/as
    he starts biting. Never yell or slap a bird- it will just
    make them more aggressive/defensive. My Loki is about 4 yrs
    old now, and much better about biting. If I say 'no biting'
    she (mostly) stops right away. She also doesn't bite nearly
    as hard- I think it took her a while to understand her own
