As small as they are, cockatiels are more intelligent than your dog. They can recognize themselves in a mirror, and comprehend and use words. They will bond as closely with a human as they will with a mate. They need to be entertained and stimulated, or they can actually develop psychological ticks like “plucking”, screaming, and aggressiveness.
This little cockatiel is obviously well loved and cared for and his happy little song shows it! Turn up your speakers and enjoy!
Thanks, Ellie, for sharing.
