I just joined today and I am really excited about this forum! This is only the second forum I have ever joined, so if I make some sort of protocol error-please know it is not on purpose. I just lost my cockatiel, Melbourne of 28 years. He was the most remarkable bird and is greatly missed. Mel was an only bird "child". The house is too quiet and I have been thinking another cockatiel or perhaps a caique? My biggest issue is the time of year/season and also my area does not have many/any bird breeders...

Any thoughts?

thank you!

Hi and welcome to Talk Parrots.

I'm sorry for your loss of your tiel Melbourne, 28 years is a long time to have a great relationship with a bird. I would get another bird a tiel would be great as you know what to expect with owning one of these birds. If you get a caique be prepared to spend a ton of time and energy on these busy active little clowns. They are like a terrible 2 year old on a 24 hour sugar bender.
