Hi Everyone

I just bought a parent fed cockatiel and I'm trying to tame him. He's a little scared of me and I can't get close but I'm reading and speaking to him through the cage. Often he's okay and just sits and listens... sometimes his eyes even flutter and he closes them like its soothing. Sometimes though when I talk to him he climbs down from his perch and sits in the corner at the bottom of the cage, I'm just wondering if I should stop and give him space when he does this or carry on reading and speaking? He doesn't make a fuss or try to fly but I'm worried he gets overwhelmed and is trying to hide from me and if I carry on being in his space when he's afraid I'm just making it worse instead of getting closer to taming him.
