Hi! My name`s Oscar Wilde, and do I have a story for you! It was a lucky day when I was rescued and taken to a shelter. I had been minding my own business and, out of the blue, was attacked by a hungry hawk. Luckily I managed to get away with my life and wing (limb to humans), just slightly bruised. A passerby stumbled upon me and took me to the animal shelter, where a Mickaboo volunteer promptly picked me up. At the veterinary clinic they gave me a good checkup . . . you can imagine the shock I had just had! Because I was a "foundling" and a bit of a rebel, my rescuer named me "Oscar Wilde." After I had been in observation a while, separate from all the other birds, they finally let me join the rest of the group.
These volunteers at Mickaboo are the best! Not only did I get medical care, a warm home, the best healthy food (Nutri-An cakes, seeds, and Harrison`s pellets, carrots, parsley, kale . . . and a few tortilla chips! Â¡OlÃ©!), they gave me a roommate! Like the rest of my flock, I like to hang out with the rest of the gang . . . especially Edie, she`s a real looker. I love to fly freely around the room, whistle tunes and learn how to do fun stuff if someone is willing to teach me. It would be great to join a human`s family and find someone who wants to be my best buddy. I know we would have a fun time together! I`ve been told that my looks are a perfect example of a normal grey cockatiel. Why don`t you come meet me and see for yourself?

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.
