My tiel has been the best companion. If worked with and loved, they are extremely friendly and depend on you as a partner. Mine fills my little apartment with singing, chirping, and life!

Pros:
- Sings beautifully (many TV theme songs or when he sees himself in a mirror, etc.)
- Extremely loyal
- Funny! Mine will shower with me, ride in the car without issue, go on walks (with clipped wings as a precaution of course!), and loves to be anywhere I am.
- Very trainable

Cons:
- Dusty and a bit messy
- Wail or cry if you leave the room (I've had to work hard training him to trust I will return)
- It is flat out cruel to leave them alone or without another bird if you are gone alot.
