"Greys resort to biting when they are frightened and afraid or if they felt they
cannot communicate anymore of their wishes and preferences." Our African Grey is extremely smart but only likes me and no one else. He will bite anyone that is not me and as he has gotten older it has gotten much much worse. I rarely can take him out of his cage anymore for fear that he will bite me as well. It makes me very sad.
