The Cockatiel is the smallest species of Cockatoo, and most familiar to many as a popular cage bird. In its native Australia, the Cockatiel is one of the most widespread of all Cockatoos.
Animal Class: Birds.
Habitat: Forest, savannah, shrubland, and grassland.
Diet: Seeds, berries, fruits, and nectar.
Appearance: They usually have grey and white feathers with bright orange cheek patches.
Size: Can reach up to 35cm in length and weigh 90g.
Lifespan: Between 10 – 14 years.
No major threats
Cockatiels also feed on crops such as sorghum, wheat, and sunflowers, which have resulted in the bird being considered an agricultural pest in some areas.
We have one Cockatiel at Ponderosa Zoo and she is called Snow.
