Why Do Cockatiels Whistle?

Did you know that that Cockatiels are one of the smallest members of the parrot family!  These lovable pets are the perfect addition to any home.  They are social pets that often love to whistle.  

Why Do Cockatiels Whistle?

  • Gender - Male Cockatiels have a tendency to whistle more often than females.  The main reason for this is that they whistle to attract mates.  This courting is a long process.

  • Enjoyment - It is likely that if your Cockatiel is whistling songs, they enjoy it.  They wouldn't whistle if it wasn't fun for them.  

  • Age - Cockatiels learn to while at a young age.  If your bird is older, it may take more time and patience for them to learn.
