I recognize all the behaviors you are describing -- Baby Bird has these qualities, as well. Despite that, however, I'd have to say she is a well-behaved bird and quite sweet in her funny way. She usually steps up from inside the cage (kind of lazy!). She has come a long way from the bitey naughty bird she was when younger. She accepts grooming pretty well, is well socialized with humans, and can be quite calm and content at times. Some things will never change, such as how much she and my conure hate each other, and I work around that by having completely separate out times. She can be stealthy about getting into the worst possible situations (finding a safety pin and chewing it up, flying into bad spots, etc.), but she is monitored almost constantly when out and about. I don't really train my birds per se, except using positive reinforcement in day-to-day interactions (nobirdie comes out of her cage until she is quiet; quiet, good, talking birds get treats, etc.). Overall, I'd say she is a great bird.
