Bishop here. The first thing that you should know about me is that I`m best friends with Tommy the cockatiel, who I met in foster care. This means that Tommy and I get to stay together forever, so we are a package deal!

I`m probably about six years old and was found by a woman who took good care of me for most of that time. She had to move recently so she surrendered me to Mickaboo. I was a bit shy in foster care at first but have been doing much better. The best thing about coming to foster care for me was meeting and bonding with Tommy, who was attacked by crows and is healing. I like being with him and looking out for him, and all of this has helped to make me a happier bird. We are flock animals, after all, and I`m lucky to have found another bird like me who needed a companion.

I sing and whistle a little bit, though I will also call out loudly when Tommy is not nearby. I play with palm shredder toys and like helping Tommy to play and enjoy himself too. I`m on a good diet of avian cakes which I will eat out of my foster mom`s hand! She says that I`m a very loving and dedicated little guy, judging from the way that I treat Tommy.

If you`re looking for two best-friend birds who will be happy to be your friend as well, call Mickaboo and ask to speak to Bishop and Tommy!

In nature, cockatiels live in large flocks. A single bird in a cage spends much of his/her life being lonely because humans have things they must do that take them away. We therefore will only adopt a single cockatiel to a household if there is already at least one cockatiel living there. Otherwise, cockatiels must be adopted in groups of two or more.
