Move the book case :rofl:
Has he got a play stand ?
It's all about teaching him to stay on a place he finds exciting
You react when he on bookshelf, he thinks its a game :biggrin:
Iv always been lucky and they choose to play either on cage tops or their play area (though I will say my play area is huge) x

hi mandi

yes he does play rips envelopes to shreds
 he does have playstand with lots of toys which he is always playing with
but when we leave the room and go in the kitchen he heads for the bookcase
will try moving it to another room tomorrow

we are amazed at about 8 o'clock every night  since we have owned him he will go to his cage and appears to close the door behind him ???

thanks for your advice

Yeah I'd try putting a scarey toy up there. One of my greys used to sit on the top of the kitchen units and chew wallpaper so now there's a big scarey java branch up there which she hates so she keeps away lol

quick update

we moved the bookcase and put a  play stand there
so now ollie has cage and two play stands placed around the house
one has just feed bowls with water in the other has lots of toys and feed bowls
so when he runs out of steam he has three landing zones.

only had one unscheduled land up to now his flying is getting better
