I have a meyers who was very easy to target train because he always wanted to go to my finger, which was also the snack he got when he got to my finger and touched it with his inner beak.
The early days aside, I started with a clicker but eventually used a consistent "Good boy!" as the trigger, and the effect was the same nonetheless. Basically making the bird do things interactively while your fingers contain the reward (with the happy sound once they do what you want) seems to work wonders.
