    Cockatiel memory

    I wonder if anyone can help. I had two cockatiels that had been together for 10 years in separate cages.
    Last week one of them died and the remaing one has been acting very funny. He has become extremely possive and keeps looking over for the cage that we removed. Can anyone tell me if they have long memories or will he simply forget about his mate.

    I don't think they'll ever forget *unlike goldfish who have a 5second memory span*. It's hard when he's spent so long with a friend. He should get better with time and you may want to consider adding a friend when things get better.

    Re: Cockatiel memory

    I had 2 share a cage for a year before I found one of them in the bottom of the cage with no warning of anything being wrong. The surviving one has seemed much more lonely now, even though there is another cockatiel in another cage. When I leave the room he yells and whistles for me, if I go into the kitchen he flies in to be with me. He didn't do these things before. I don't think they forget...
