Thanks for your votes...I appreciate them...Also glad to hear that you are finding the blogs interesting....V4U..Today my campaign blog I will give you a bit of information about the cockatiel that Mom thought was also interesting to know...The earliest reference to the cockatiel dates back to 1792,when it was described for scientific purposes.However, it was probably not until the late 1830s that cockatiels were first brought to Europe-at about the same time as the budgerigar-and for many years the cockatiel remained in the shadow of that other popular member of the Australian parrot family.Not until the 1950s did cockatiel mutations start to appear, and during recent years the cockatiel has finally achieved a strong international following, with numerous colors established and new color combinations still being developed.As its popularity increased cockatiel enthusiasts founded specialist societies that attract an international membership, in various countries,exhibition standards have now been established for the different varieties,including the normal grey.The cockatiel is classified as a member of the cockatoo family and was originally named the cockatoo parrot.The word cockatiel may have been introduced by a London bird dealer who shortened the Dutch word 'Kakatielje' which translates as 'small cockatoo'. Have a nice Tuesday...May birdie wing hugs ...Sam :o)
