Cockatiel

Cockatiels are now a very popular pet.

They are greyish blue in colour with a distinctive yellow crest and orange ear markings.  They have white wing coverts although in females this is greyer.  The beak is greyish blue and they have a longish tail.  The female is duller in coloration. 

They eat both seeds and fruits.
