The Rosy Cheeked Cockatiel- you'd think they were so friendly. Most of them look the same- making them very easy to recognize like you're an expert "ah yes, a cockatiel"- cause they're the typically yellow birds, sometimes with some gray, and they have red circles on their cheeks. Kinda cute, but after having a few of them, I'm not a fan. We had them when I was a teenager- two of them, Oscar and Emmy. They weren't super friendly, didn't bond with us- only with my dad, who doesn't really do pets or nurturing at all, which is funny, and kind of telling about these birds.
The birds hated the rest of the family, they bit our fingers and didn't like to be pet or held. Also they'd fly out of their cage and around the kitchen when we opened it to feed them.
