Aye!, hey, Hon, how ya doin’? I have a cockatiel, too. He was an “escapee”, and came into the animal shelter I work at. He’s a pied, too, and mostly white. Apparently, he was not treated too swell at his former home. he’s terrified of hands; maybe that’s why he flew off into yond…
His name is Smitty, kinda long story, but, man, he whistles a whole lot. Loud. Cockatiels sometimes talk, but mainly, they are expert at whistling tunes. A friend has a cockatiel that expertly whistles the Andy Griffith theme song. I’ve been trying to teach Smitty songs, but he pretty much takes the parts he likes and whistles a medley.
Anyhoo, as to names: Whistlepig, Sweetpea, Quetzlcoatl, Hamelin (pied, get it? ;)), Butch, Yoyo, Yomama, Hobbes, Huevito, Che, Chucklehead, Biff, and Phideaux come to mind. But, Cece would be a mighty swell name too.
Enjoy yer birdie, Aye! Cockatiels are muy swell.
