For now, I would say not to allow him up on your shoulder.

Work on training new behaviors and make sure your bird knows how to play independently with toys and forage for food.


With some work in training and teaching new behaviors, you may try reintroducing sitting on your shoulder with some foot toys or a toy necklace he can play with to keep busy.
