Cockatiel, white

Product 2 of 51

With its characteristic crest and the beak like a parrot, the cockatiel reminds of a cockatoo and parrot. Actually, it is the sole member of its genus Nymphicus. Though in the meantime they get ordered to the family of cockatoos mostly.
Originally they are from Australia, where they adapted perfectly to the environmental conditions. For though they look quite small and delicate, they truly are skillful fliers. They can fly fast, with speeds of up to 100 km/h (60 mph), making them the fastest bird in Australia. Furthermore they can fly long-distance, not seldomly over several hundreds of kilometers or miles per day, if they need to evade droughts or storms that often occur in the inland plains of the continent.

Our cockatiel belongs to a breed which does not have the mask in the face, a coloured marking around its eyes, any longer. With its totally white plush coat it loves to sit on shelves, baskets, plants or even on the table just to be close to its playmate. For cockatiels like nothing better than being together with somebody, they are very sociable animals. In the wild they live in coveys and stay with their partner for all their lives. They are also very playful, curious and like to be entertained. This makes them the ideal play mate for both, young and old or anything else in between.
