Help, Bonding with someone else's parrot


My girlfriend owns a four year old Quaker parrot and ever since I met him I been reading up on parrot behavior and how to establish a relationship with them. Now what I wanted to ask you, according to your experience, is it possible that the bird ever becomes fond of me? I go to her house about once a week, and so far whenever he sees me he screams and quakes, and he looks scared of me. Whenever her brother had him on his shoulder and I would try to approach slowly it would show signs of trying to bite. The bird is not trained, spends most of his time in his cage, has over bonded with her brother and is very aggressive towards my girlfriend and scared of people he doesn't know. Any attempt at trying to talk to him while in his cage ends with him screaming or biting the cage bars.

Should I keep trying, or because I don't see him much he'll always be scared of me? Is there anything I can do so it won't go nuts whenever I'm around in the house and so it wouldn't suffer my presence?
