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.
