That's known as the extremely adorably cutie pie cockatiel.

From the picture it looks to be a Pied Cockatiel. Cannot see the wings but if it has yellow spots over the wing area it may be a Pied Pearl.

Beautiful bird!

I'm sure I asked about our Donald here once. He's got pied grey splotches on the back of his head and seems to be paler than most tiels are. His crest is almost entirely yellow.

Here's our favourite pic of him. "Don't worry, be happy"!
