Good advice already but I'd like to add...one way to get your bird accustomed to you it to sit near the cage and read aloud in a soft voice. Childrens books are good for this and in fact read as if you were reading to a child. You have to at least sound interesting. Don't stare at your bird as that makes them uncomfortable. It seems as if the others have given you good steps to follow after the initial getting used to you stage.
