Cockatiels are energetic, sleekbirds who love attention and are very outgoing. Josh loved to sit on my head and pull my hair and sing. He was quite vocal and sang a lot until covered at night, then was well behaved. He was very actived and easily trained. I used to train him with treats. I could have him fly to me and stay. Grooming was easy, using cuttlebone and sandpaper on his perch to keep his nails trimmed. He was also my mother's constant companion until his passing. I would recommend these only to somebody willing to spend time, and effort to keep him occupied. Please do not get one if you don't have the time to put into it.
