Parakeet and Cockatiel Care
Use our Cockatiel and Parakeet care guide to learn how you can care for your budgie or cockatiel. Parakeets (also known as budgies or Budgerigars) are small parrots originating from Australia. Budgies are very sociable friendly birds who, if given plenty of encouragement, can learn a large vocabulary. Cockatiels, on the other hand, are limited talkers but males can be very good at whistling tunes. Cockatiels are also native to Australia and are one of the most popular companion birds in the US.
