Cockatiels are peaceful bird and ver gregious. They make wonderful pets. They are usually very quiet, but love to whistle and few exceptional birds learn to talk. Most are easily tamed. Tame birds are easily trained and almost never bite. The only down side to the cockatiels are that they are dusty. That's ok though because a dusty cockatiel is a healthy cockatiel. I can say with a question they make a good choice for a person's first bird.
