I love my cockatiels. However, I find their poops are significantly larger than the budgie's. The powder down really doesn't bother me. My tiels molt much less than the budgie does.

My first tiel was a pet store female, and she is not very bonded with me. She is quiet most of the time, but goes through periods when she chirps loudly for periods of the day. My male tiel I got as a baby, and I was able to pick one that was comfortable on my finger. He is lovely and very bonded to me. I love to hear him whistle sings. Since my tiel has stared whistling, I feel that my budgie has become more tuneful, kind of imitating the tiel. Or, maybe I'm imagining it. But, sometimes, I am not sure which one is singing. I play recordings of tiels whistling "The Adams Family" and "Andy Griffith Song" and he has picked these up. I have to use recordings because, sadly, I cannot whistle.
