MUCH THANKS to the Poicephalus FAQs (Ken Hulme -
firstname.lastname@example.org) and Steve Degroof. Most of this document is plagerization of the
Berkely the Jardine (Owner: Steve Degroof)
Black & green wings, green head, belly and underparts. Orange/red forehead, socks, and leading edge of the shoulder/wing. Brown eyes in adults. Several sub-species varying in coloration.
Undeterminable by appearance.
They're not great talkers like the African Grey or Timneh, but can learn a reasonable vocabulary, depending on the individual bird and the owner's willingness to spend time training.
The Poicephalus aren't noted screamers or otherwise loud or noisy. Most of their sounds are low key whistles, chirps, squeaks, and assorted chattering. Cockatiels are often more noisy (and more obnoxiously so) than Senegals, Meyers, or Jardines.
Prices usually $500-975
