Cockatiel Sound Clips

"Want to see a Sound Clip Of My Cockatiel Singing The Theme Song To Winnie The Pooh?"

If you are searching for cockatiel sound clips, you’ll soon discover that they are not that easy to find.

I searched and searched to find something and most of what I found were downloads of cockatiel sound clips that you have to pay for. There are also many other downloadables with several bird sounds and sometimes running water, that  go by the name of “Nature” or another such title.

However we've posted an article on Cockatiel Sound Files, where we have found a couple good free resources, but the video clips are hard to find.  But you're in luck... because I've got a great sound clip of my cockatiel singing the "Winnie the Pooh" theme song!

... If you do find these nature sounds and you can identify the cockatiel in them, it will still not give you a very clear picture of what cockatiels are supposed to sound like in particular or given situations. Besides, most of these “Nature” sounds are rainforest birds or sounds in tropical locations, and do not include true cockatiel sound clips.

Cockatiel sound clips are of course very different sounds than those found for a finch or a macaw. Every bird has its own sound or voice, like we humans do, and the variety is what makes it so appealing.

A cockatiel can make soft melodic sounds, or screeching squawks, but most sounds are made for a reason. The male is much more talkative than the female, and part of his mating process will depend on his skillfulness as a singer. Under observation during mating, if several cockatiels are courting a hen, it is said that other males will step aside for the best singer. Singing is recognized by other males and the status of the best singer is elevated and a move is made by the others to allow the talented male to be the winner of the hen!

Some people buy cockatiel sound clips to train their cockatiel or to keep him company while they are away. If you decide to do this, make sure you don’t bring something home that is going to stress your baby while you’re away! Certain cockatiel sound clips will make him nervous instead of just keeping him company.

Cockatiels brought to a home when they are very young learn to imitate human sounds more than the sounds of their own species. A cockatiel will imitate its human pet and a conversation will inevitably strike up. You can play a sing song with your cockatiel and call yourself the cockatiel whisperer! Check this out for more information on cockatiel care if you are bringing home a new cockatiel.

I have two cockatiels, a male and a female. My male cockatiel is much more verbal than my female and their sounds are very different. If I were to make cockatiel sound clips of my male, and cockatiel sound clips of my female, it would almost sound like two different species. And if I were to make cockatiel sound clips of my male when he’s trying to get my attention or cockatiel sound clips of my female while she is attempting to do the same, again, they would sound completely different.

The cockatiel sound clips I would have of my female sound a lot more random that those cockatiel sound clips of my male. My female carries on a conversation by repeating what I say (my whistle or sound), however my male will change his tune and pace depending on what he’s trying to say or who he wants to show off for to earn some points. Training a cockatiel to whistle or repeat you requires some work but is very possible.

Again, it’s the battle of the sexes, but in this case, this battle will be won over by the sweetest of sounds.
