Cockatiels are great but can be a bit needy. In my experience (with two) they are *very* vocal so perhaps not the best fit if you don't like early morning screeches! With that being said, they can be very sweet. Mine were quite intelligent (I like to think) and would bob their heads in agreement. Like many small breeds, they are inexpensive to maintain and can live for some time with the right care. Great inexpensive pet for a family.
