    Cockatiel Talk

  9. My bird is so confusing - male or female?

    Cockatiel Talk
    Okay, so I've been trying to figure out the gender of my bird, Tallie. He/She is only around 5 or 6mo old, but I'm SO confused. Okay, the wing spots def. look male, but I know that's not always 100% He/she really hasn't shown any male behaviors except whistling. Tallie will only whistle when...

    Just thought I'd share, my cockatiel let me pet him on the head for the first time tonight. I spent about 15 minutes petting his head and he was singing and whistling the whole time. It was pretty exciting!
