MUCH THANKS to the Poicephalus FAQs Michael S. Ross (firstname.lastname@example.org) for the information on this page.
Woody the Red Belly (Owner: Michael Ross)
Subtle chest colors - gray-green with red tinges; dark gray wings.
8 - 9"
The males have red-orange chests -- the only true sexually dimorphic Poicephalus.
They're not great talkers like the African Grey or Timneh, but can learn a reasonable vocabulary, depending on the individual bird and the owner's willingness to spend time training.
The Poicephalus aren't noted screamers or otherwise loud or noisy. Most of their sounds are low key whistles, chirps, squeaks, and assorted chattering. Cockatiels are often more noisy (and more obnoxiously so) than Senegals, Meyers, or Jardines.
Prices usually $200-$500
