i had a cockatiel that would say a few things...pretty bird, hi charlie, pretty charlie. he would also wolf whistle and do a 'bob white' imitation.
just like mason said, if you offer a finger right at his chest, he will step up on it. maybe not at first, but eventually. i used to tell charlie, "step up." and he did.
charlie could fly pretty well, even if i trimmed his flights. he didn't like to leave my finger but if i gave him a gentle toss (kind of a gentle swooping up in the air motion) he would take flight. it was cool. he'd fly a couple of laps around my house and then settle somewhere.
