My Pet Canary Bid Was Fearful...Now Friendly

My Pet Canary Bird Has Become Quite Freindly

When I got this bird he was afraid of my hands. Now, he comes to the side of the cage to peck my finger. He loves to do that more than eat. He lets me pass my hand close to him in the cage and will peck my finger inside the cage without fear now.
He also will say good morning even when molting and not singing. He calls me to his cage with a single tweet when he wants me to come play. He also tweets to sound an alarm if something disturbs him.
He will respond if I call or whistle to him from another room even when he does not see me. He comes running to side of cage when he sees me come in
the door. He likes to sing
to Abba and some Christian music CDs.
He loves the water and sometimes takes 2-3 baths in one day. He is very picky about things in his cage being moved. I moved a cuttle bone once. He had a fit and kept going to place it was before until I returned it.
I am surprised at how they can communicate. I used to be a dog person, but now I really enjoy the canary.
