Talented Cockatiel

Talented Cockatiel

We loved this video of a talented Cockatiel! One trait all cockatiels have in common is a large, recurved crest which is erected during times of excitement or fear. Cockatiels share this trait with cockatoos and it has long been assumed that cockatiels must be biologically related to the cockatoo. But, the Cockatiel is the only species of parrot in its genus (nymphicus). Its scientific name is said to be derived from the mythic “nymph”, because of their beauty, and hollandicus is a reference to New Holland, as Australia was referred to during the time of the discovery of this species.
