Hi, we're Nora (in front) and Nick, a pair of slightly pied grey tiels. As you can see, we look like normal greys except that our faces are more a bit more interesting. We were left at an avian veterinarian's office in the South Bay, apparently because somebody didn't want us anymore. We were together then, we've helped each other cope with the abandonment that we faced, and we're going to stay together forever!
We are still a bit shy but are growing more and more comfortable around our foster dad. We will even eat sprigs of millet out of his hand. We're getting bolder every day about climbing out of our cage and doing some (supervised!) exploring of the world around us. The good thing about being part of a pair is that you have someone to watch your back, and this has helped us to become more outgoing.
Speaking of pairs, there are several advantages to adopting a pair of cockatiels instead of just one. We already have best friends in each other so we won't get lonely, but this doesn't mean that we won't enjoy the company of a human family as well. We're ready to expand our horizons and make new friends. While we're at it could we make friends with you?
Notice: Cockatiels are flock animals, and most of them are much happier when they live with at least one other cockatiel! Because of this, unless a household currently includes another cockatiel, Mickaboo usually requires that a minimum of two cockatiels be adopted.
