Well when I am outside I don't care at all. I have moved nests while birds dart at me and even picked up wounded birds. But if you put a bird inside then I get a little nervous. I am not running around screaming and if I have something in my hand I am not worried at all.
I also hunt and grew up on a farm so being around animals don't worry me at all.
