Have shoulder, will perch!
Whereas some cockatiels like their space, Pearl the Passenger wants to be UP IN YOUR BUSINESS. This pretty girl is always looking for a place to perch on her person – preferably their shoulder – and if you have one available only a short flight away, she will invite herself to it. Similarly, anything you are putting in to your mouth is of interest to her, so be prepared to hand over your fresh green veggies and water glass (she may use the dish in her cage as a litterbox). Pearl is a quiet, gentle, and pretty girl, will let you sleep in as long as your alarm doesn’t wake her, and would be a great addition to any home, especially one that will have her at least occasionally practice observing personal boundaries!
