Buddy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Buddy
Age: Six months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Pied Dirtyface Cockatiel
Home: North Carolina, USA
   Buddy is sweet as pie! He is very cuddly. When I first got him, he was a bit shy. I got him at a pet store. The other cockatiels bullied him sometimes, but he was still very curious. He loves to explore, and chew on my bracelets. When I have to put him back in his cage, he'll go in like a good bird. But when he realizes that I'm leaving the room, he'll say little "Chirp? CHIRP?! CHIRP!!" Because he wants to snuggle, not be left in his cage. Sometimes at night he'll get night-frights, meaning nightmares, and I have to get him out and cuddle. After a cuddle he'll always feel better.

    He gets along well with my sister's cockatiel, Pearl. Pearl's just a little bit picky about personal space, and Buddy just tries to play. We're switching him over to a pellet and fruits/veggies diet, because seeds aren't very good from him. (They can have heart problems if they eat seeds all their life). Buddy likes to sit outside on our deck and explore, and listen to the outside birds. The gray markings on his face are called "Dirtyface" markings. Not very nice, is it? Well, that's what some cockatiel breeder named the marking, so Buddy's a Pied Dirtyface Cockatiel. Even though I've only had him for a short time, I feel like we're best buds forever!
