    Thank you so much.
    I went to the pet store today and ran into a lady who also has
    a lovebird.
    She told me almost the identical thing.
    It makes sense now that I hear it.
    I was trying to give him his "evening time" in the morning and
    I think he must just see that as a bonus, not a replacement!
    I will hang out with him when I get home from work and wean
    him slowly like you said.
    Again, thanks a lot.... I appreciate the advice.
