Sometimes rewards can be things other than treats. See if he responds better to an excited voice or a quiet voice. Then when he is doing well use the voice he responds best to and when he is not doing what he should use a "disappointed or displeased voice". Even if he won't accept treats the tone of voice should help get through to him. But again as you already know be consistent. Don't use happy praise one time and soft praise the next or he may be confused as to which is good and which is not. Also keep trying different treats. My Lewy and Lolo both (CAG) are very picky about their treats. Most of our other birds like pieces of almond or peanut but they respond better to bites of pasta or birdie muffins. It could be you haven't located his favorite yet.
