Funny Cockatiel

First off I want to say that owning a bird is a total commitment. The cockatiel I owned was named Toni, he was a talker and very social. Cockatiels take a lot of work. They are very social birds. They need attention. When you decide to get a bird, you need to ask yourself, how much time you can spend with this bird? Toni was talked to on a daily basis. He eventually learned to whistle for the dog, call the cat (here kitty kitty) and recognized family members. He would also cough if he heard someone cough. They mimic, so repeating things often will usually work. From what I understand through research, males tend to be more vocal than females.
