We used to have cockatiels. Great little birds. The boy "Chip" was a lot smarter then the girl "Punky" we had.. he used to imitate commercial songs. He learned "All around the Mulberry bush" from the "Whoops Oppsy Daisy" Doll commercial that put different words to it. It took us a bit to realize where he picked it up from then one day it came on and he sang along with it.. silly bird. He also learned how to cat call from a commercial. Kinda funny when my mom would have friends over and they walk by and he'd cat call them..
We eventually gave them to my mom's aunt who was lonely and the girl flew out a window. The boy they still have. He talks now so they have to watch what they say to/around him... they renamed him DB because when they first got him every time she cleaned out the cage she would coo to him "you're such a dirty bird" and eventually he started saying "dirty bird, dirty bird" and it stuck.
