Cockatiel

Birds

Cockatiel (Nymphicus hollandicus)

Nomads on the search for water

Cockatiels are nomads, always looking for food and water. Their breeding season is dependent on rain: Breeding starts with the beginning of the rainy season. Only during this time, they find enough food to raise their offspring. If the rainy season lasts for a longer period, they breed more than once in quick succession.
Cockatiels are monogamous, even in large flocks. Cockatiel pairs keep in close proximity while foraging or flying.
