Is my bird trying to groom me?

He will nibble on my ear, but mostly not bite really hard. He also bites my hair too. I just caught him nibbling on my shirt, too.

He also gives me kisses. If I turn toward him while he's on my shoulder, he'll just open his mouth on my lips, lol XD

Probably. Our cockatiel loves to preen hair and get out any tangles. It's hilarious.

My green cheek conure used to preen and cut my hair! Your bird considers you as his mate. Be careful with human kisses...saliva could be really bad for birds...
