I just bought a beautiful Cockatiel today! Any advice for a first time owner?

He is absolutely beautiful! And his name is Oscar :) He is even already hand tamed. But I've never owned a cockatiel before and I'm wondering if anyone can give advice for how to bond with him. Thanks :)

Cockatiels bond quickly from my experiences... I have had 3 of them. Giving them fruits when you come to see them is a nice way to speed things along and whistling to them works also. They normally pick up tunes quite quickly. One of mine liked to cuddle up on my chest and they all liked having the back of their neck rubbed. Good luck!
