The Cockatiel is a bird of very calm and sweet nature which makes it an incredible pet to own and look after. They are capable of learning words and sounds which they will mimic from their owners and surroundings.
They have a mild personality which makes these birds ideal for children. Their crest stands up when they are alarmed or interested in something. As these birds age they remain mellow and easy to handle unlike other birds which can get aggressive the older they get.
I would recommend these birds to people just starting out with birds or small children.
