Move slowly when approaching him in his cage, that's his safe zone so if he lunges at you when you are reaching him in his cage try bribing him with a little millet to get him to step up on your hand.

He will be too busy eating to bite you when he is coming out of the cage. He will catch on as you feel more comfortable.

If he bites, don't yell or make a face or react he wants to show you what to do. What you need to do is move your hand up and down quickly or shake and wiggle your hand side to side making your hand unbalanced. The bird will have to stop biting to make sure he can stay balanced and hang on to your hand, that's when you say, "NO, no bites."
