My mother got a Cockatiel when I was a child, and it was such a fabulous bird. It was a bit messy, and had a habit of pooping on your shirt while it was sitting on your shoulder, but it would give kisses, talk to you, whistle, and was really beautiful to look at. I don't know a ton about birds, but this one was absolutely great for a family.
