Cockatiel Tales...

A great bird for beginning bird owners and veterans alike....just ask a veteran. These birds are like pups with wings. If socialized properly they are as loyal as a St. Bernard. When you pair them up, which is great bu not totally necessary, they may become a bit more independent at times but still love their owners.

Daily interaction is a must. Teach them to whistle your favorite tune. They will mimick other sounds as well, at times.

I've had many birds and the cockatiel is a true favorite.
