haha So I hear, it was hard for anyone to convince me of getting another, when 1 was already so frustrating. The cockatiel was actually given to me by a friend who could no longer take care of him, he was an awesome bird, just VERY noisy so I wonder if part of the problem wasn't previous ownership. After doing some research I got the blue and gold Macaw, he was loud but not as obnoxious. The cockatiel would just start screeching, even when you approached the cage to put him at ease.

I'll take a horse biting at me, playfully, over a bird that screeches constantly loud enough to startle my neighbors.
