I have a scar on my finger where a cockatiel bit to the bone. Poor guy was an escape artist and got out of his cage but couldn't make his way back. When I picked him up to help him back in his cage he latched on. Surprising how strong their beaks are. The rest of his visit with us, I was babysitting him for a friend, he remained very well locked in his cage. All this to say that if you are going to try to handle him, just be careful not to get badly bitten.
