One other thing I'd like to mention is that I have never been a fan of gloves or mitts when you are dealing with the birds.If they are shy of your hands then bigger puffier colorful hands aren't going to cut it either.

IMHO get rid of the gloves and let him trust your hands.You wearing the gloves says you expect to be bit.If you have this fear then you have to deal with that.These feathered beauties sense every emotion we feel and if he senses you fear anything he will bite you.You need to face this fearless and all apprehensions need to be put to rest.If you need protection stick training for step ups is much more effective in time.You still need him to trust you first.
