    He doesn’t want to nibble your ear, he wants your earrings! Watch out!

    Yes, he’s after the earrings. At the parrot aviary near my Dad in Florida, they always have you remove your jewelry before you go in, because the parrots will try to pry it off you. I once had an African grey try to pry a stud out of my ear in an now-defunct parrot store in Greenwich Village (a magical place, BTW, so sad it’s gone).
