Cockatiels are one of the most common pet birds in the world! These beautiful birds are characterized by a unique yellow crest of feathers sticking up on the top of their heads. Sometimes thought of as small parrots or cockatoos, cockatiels typically get along well with humans, making them the perfect companion bird to keep at home!
Cockatiels are talkative birds, commonly chirping and whistling to communicate with their human owners or other birds. Different types of sounds mean different things, so learning cockatiel vocalizations can help you understand your pet bird. Hearing other cockatiel sounds can even help calm your bird when he is agitated or upset!
A common cockatiel sound is a loud vocalization that is somewhere in between a whistle and a scream or squeal. This noise typically means the bird is either afraid or excited. Softer chatter or singing is usually a sign that your bird is happy or bored. Hissing can be heard from cockatiels who are feeling scared and threatened. Cockatiels also make many other calls and whistles, especially since like their parrot cousins, cockatiels mimic whistles that they hear in their environment!
