are an exceptionally popular bird, and justifiably so.
These small parrots are flat-out loving, and they live to snuggle
and be petted. If you only recognize the gray bird with orange patches,
you may be surprised at how many colors are available, thanks to the work
of some energetic breeders.
Some cockatiels learn to talk, but many are better at whistling. This
bird is another who’s a good choice for children as long as they understand
the need for careful handling..
