When Adonis loosely grabs my finger in his beak and bops his head up and down really quickly
what do you think he is doing? he seems to love it

I believe that's regurgitating. It means he likes you :]

Depending on several things, that is either a baby "feed me" behavior, or more likely a regurgitation behavior. Parrots (usually) do this for mates, so he may consider you his mate. There is nothing harmful in this unless he starts getting the 'wrong ideas'. Sexual frustration (frustration about why you aren't building a nest with him, etc) in male parrots can lead to some unwanted behavior such as misdirected biting, etc. If he seems to get really worked up let us know as there are things you can do to help. :)

oh yeah he defintely considers me his mate. he is protective and hates my girlfriend. lately he has been holding my finger down and bopping up and down
does he need a girlfriend parrot? could a macaw mate with a cocteau?
i saw the cutest little girl macaw in the pet store but worried that adonis is a creepy old man type and would snap her neck after his "c'mer baby"
