A Tiny Beak and Spiky Feathers (Cockatiel)
Cosy in his nest, a tiny chick waits for his parents to arrive with food. With his tiny pink beak and sparse, spiky feathers, who does this little baby belong to? The little creature huddled alongside his brothers and sisters is a cockatiel chick, and one day he will be a sleek, colourful, super-fast flyer – just like his mum and dad! As readers turn the pages, they will discover the ways in which a cockatiel chick is similar to and different from its parents. They will learn how the parent birds care for the chick, and see how the little bird grows, changes and gets ready for his adult life as a member of a 1000–strong flock of wild cockatiels.
