hehe, thanks. Charlie is definitely a boy. He has found himself a nest and is very protective of it. He is waiting for a female quaker to come along and then he'll woo her into his nest .

I don't think he is considering me as one of his female quakers. He is definitely not wooing me into his nest.

He's like that in spring season, it's the hormones. He is just dying to breed but he can't so he's taking his frustration out on everything, including me

Yes, quakers can be quite hormonal this time of the year, mine certainly is and she does the same thing (hiding under things), only she carries the papers to hide under herself. But, in my personal opinion, you might want to stop prodding him into a reaction as well as laughing when he does it aggressively. The signals you are sending are confusing to him...

I'm only teasing him a little bit just for the camera for a little bit of laugh, I don't do it all the time, maybe once in many years .

If we can't have a little bit of a harmless laugh with our animals now and again then we might as well give them all up and sit in front of a TV moping all day long

No problem with harmless fun but prodding him into aggression and then laughing about it is a dangerous mixed signal -especially with quakers. Personally, I am VERY careful not to incite anybirdie to an aggressive reaction, especially during breeding season when fuses are so shortm but, if it happens, I am very careful not to show approval in any way.
