It takes time and patience! Every day without fail. Take him out. I bet he comes around quickly! Birds are frightened easily by nature. Just trust in yourself and devote time. I can’t say it enough! Make sure you aren’t nervous. The bird can tell. Some birds don’t like certain toys. Take the swing out and try it again at a later date. You said he likes paper. Make him a toy! Don’t give up on him. I recently adopted a 12 year old cockatiel who was hand fed and completely tame then left in his cage for 10 years. In one week he’s pretty tame again! He still bites a little but he’s not flying around as much! He’d rather be with one of us already. So, I don’t think they lose what they had. You just have to bring it back out of them again. My Zeek is loving life again!
