Default Pre-Owned Budgie

I am so excited to be adopting a new budgie! I have had budgies most of my life, but it has been several years since I had one. All I know about this one is that it is blue & 2 to 3 years old. The budgie's owner moved into a nursing home, & could not take the bird. The current foster parent says that it will come to the edge of the cage to nibble their fingers & chirp, but does not want to sit on their hand if they put it inside the cage.

I've never started with an adult budgie, or one that had a previous owner. Any suggestions or advice for bonding with the little one in this special situation?
