Wild Cockatiels – Rectangle Canvas Print
$250.00 – $1,180.00
Also known in Western Australia as “Weiros” I wanted to paint these birds as we are so used to seeing them as pets in captivity that we often forget that they actually exist in the wild. How amazing to see a flock of them in their native environment!
These are a member of the cockatoo family endemic to Australia where they are found largely in arid or semi-arid country, but always close to water. Largely nomadic, the species will move to where food and water is available. They often eat cultivated crops. They are typically seen in pairs or small flocks, although sometimes hundreds will flock around a single body of water. In the wild cockatiel’s plumage is primarily grey. It has long tail feathers roughly making up half of its total length. At 30 to 33cm (12 to 13in), the cockatiel is the smallest of the cockatoos. They are relatively vocal birds. As caged birds, cockatiels are second in popularity only to budgerigars.
