Smartie was a great bird. I sat in the front room and she would come up and rest on my leg - cockatiels are very friendly.
The only downside to owning a cockatiel is that they, for want of a better word, poo everywhere. You must be willing to clean regularly... But other than that they are reasonably quiet, very easy-going, and as I've said, very friendly.
