We use trick training for many reasons, least of which is to teach a trick! Trick training accomplishes many many things, such as: trust, not to bite, coordination, problem-solving, mental stimulation, confidence, socialization, obedience, going back to the cage, coming out of the cage, etc. (You can substitute the word "behavior" for the word "trick"... this is more about training behavior than it is tricks.)
And using the clicker gives you a way to communicate with your bird like nothing else can!

Power Pause Continued...
This power pause training technique is very effective in training your bird to be calm in your presence, and this is the intent of the training. You click on good behavior and follow immediately with the reward, which in this case is giving the bird his space (because that's what he wants most).
Each time you engage watch the body language. The moment you see concern or discomfort, pause! Wait for the body language to relax, click, reward by backing away slowly. Repeat several times with short breaks.
Every bird, owner, and situation is different. You might find that an hour of this is enough to get right up to the cage to drop a seed in the food bowl (don't leave treats in the bowl!) Or this might take you a few days. Don't push your bird, and you wil find that the training will go much faster.
