Christmas Cockatiel

Bob is 9 years old. Thanks to Gerad on flickr for his picture.

Cockatiels are small cockatoos and are also known as quarrions and weeros. They are native to Australia. They have gentle and sociable natures which make them good pets although they can be quite noisy and are not good for small children.

Cockatiels are better at imitating whistles than speech.

They are easy birds for breeding—a clutch of cockatiel eggs is generally 4 to 5 thumbnail sized eggs.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas. See you on the 26th!
