My GCC was 12 weeks when we got him, so we didn't have those problems. But I have heard of people using treats at first to get the bird out of the cage. And then going to neutral territory, away from the cage. (I think many people use the bathroom, since it's small). during that time you practice stepping up, talking to the bird, etc.
are his wings clipped? I guess that might help too, so he can't fly away from you. I definitely don't think 5 months is too late though.
