Wow! - White face Cockatiel! - NZ - Southland by 

Cockatiels are native to Australia. They have an average Life span of 15 to 20 years. They are sociable and easy to tame. They do well as individuals or as pairs. They have the ability to talk and they like to whistle.
This male is a White-face split to Albino. The Albino is all white with red eyes; while the White-face is a charcoal color with a white face. This is the true color of the cockatiel and the photo has not been adapted to B&W, these cockatiels do not have red on their cheeks. Photo taken Gore Gardens Southland

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
