Native to Australia, the cockatiel is a friendly bird that makes a fantastic pet. Available in a variety of colours, they are very popular. Often, cockatiels can learn tricks, and they are fantastic whistlers. In fact, they can often learn entire songs!
When it comes to feeding your cockatiel, it's important to refill the seed dish every day. Before filling, you should also remove any remaining seed - which may include empty and dry husks. Of course, always make sure your bird has plenty of fresh, clean water available, and you should thoroughly clean the water container at least once a week.
Understanding Bird Body Language.
You can learn a lot about birds by watching their body language. A bird that whistles or sings is generally happy, safe and content, whereas one with its head down, body feathers ruffled and tail feathers flared can be feeling quite angry and aggressive. Very loud chatter can also be a sign that a bird wants more attention, as can wing flapping. Some birds will also tap their feet as a sign of dominance over their territory.
