Dr Vanessa told me today that there is a top 10 list of the best singing birds in the world. With spring here at last I am making my move to get onto that list. The yellow tailed black cockatoo is number 10 on the list!! All they do is screech and squawk, whereas, my dulcet tones are soothing to any ear.
Move over nightingales, this is my revised number one on the top 10 list:
1. Cockatiel (Baby) - is considered as the most pleasant melodic bird song. The name cockatiel means "dulcet tones". His beautiful song is described in many poems ("Ode to a Cockatiel" by John Keates), books ("The Cockatiel" by Hans Christian Andersen) and operas ("The Cockatiel" by Charles Strouse).
The cockatiel lives in Australia and makes a cute and amazing veterinary clinic birdy mascot.
