I've had a pionus bite my ear once.... HOT DIGGITY DAWG!!!!! My ear burned awful for three hours after that. No holes just a powerful pinch. From then on I swore anything bigger than my conures would ever have shoulder time.
Lurch bit my ear once too. I didn't share my oatmeal fast enough and POW! He did punch two holes in my right ear and we had a very bad talk and I stuffed him kicking and screaming into his cage and covered him for a while so he could birdy swear at me while I calmed down. I finally let him out in the early evening and he landed on my recliner and said HI Sweetheart so I figured we were good...

It's been 0 days without incident.

Rowan was sitting nicely on my hand. I wanted to take a closer look at a wonky looking feather on his wing, and thought maybe since he was in such a relaxed and good mood he wouldn't mind, but. Hm. 1610956303332.png

He gave me this rather artful stab-and-drag along my knuckle as thanks.

Here is a very similar knucle bite from me so you don't feel alone. Stings when I do washing up. Happened during our play time but I was asking for it. Pinned Astro down on her back and tickled her tummy.....................

I think it's more risky to own a bird than attack dog:rofl: i can imagine posting on this thread in the future when I likely own a bigger bird

Chaos got me today. My fault, I saw the fluffed head and dilated eyes.
I asked for a step up. Got that and more.
Deep!
That looks like it could use a couple of stitches. Sorry you got bit. Cosmo got me good a few days ago for taking her away from my dachshund's crate which she thinks should be her nest. Except, it was just a pressure bite to my little finger. Swelled a little, still sore, only minor bruising and minimal bleeding. I was lucky.
