Ornithologists believe cockatiels
are cockatoos which, in the process of evolution, remained
behind in size and came to look more like parakeets
than "true parrots." The name Cockatiel is
thought to be an English adaptation of a Dutch sailor's
pronunciation of the Portugese word "cacatitho",
meaning a little cockatoo. Cockatiels are mainly
found in Australia and are often known as desert birds.
Cockatiels are ideal
for the first time pet owner. My first set of birds
was a grey pair of cockatiels. They are characteristically
happy and cheerful birds, never moody or demanding.
Their whistle is soft and they are gentle. Cockatiels
feed on greens in all forms, corn muffins or soft breads.
Canned kernel type corn and millets are special favorites.
Cockatiels can easily be trained to say simple phrases
and are especially talented at learning to whistle little
tunes. Their voices have a reedy quality much like the
voice of a small child.
Tame cockatiels often
love to do things like take showers with you and wolf-whistle.
My cockatiels eat off my plate of spaghetti and demand
headscratches. They demand to be let on your shoulder
for a ride, and make cute noises. Cockatiels also ask
to be picked up and played with. However, untrained cockatiels
can be a nuisance, especially in front of guests. Ain't
I right? We have a wonderful solution. Try it.
