    I have immense respect for little bird's biting ability. Budgies grab as much flesh as they can and SHAKE what they have in their mouth!

    It causes a lot of pain, believe me!

    The littles can very much inflict pain. Rupert and Sherbie both do the "bite and grind". It doesn't feel good!

    Poor dad! I hope he’s good natured about it. Do you know what triggered it?

    not exactly... i think he got angry at my dad for being to close to me. my dad doesn't get angry at him or anything, but hes not 'happy' about it.

    My foster lovie used to bite and not let go. LOL. I would slowly lift my hand and he would just hang on with his little feet dangling off of the ground, looking at me with this angelic face as blood dripped off my finger. I used to tell him it was a good thing he was so cute. LOL.

    A lovebird bite is nothing to tangle with! My linnies… it's almost comical compared to my lovebird.
