A large monster in the form of a cockatiel.

Giant cockatiels are giant animal counterparts of regular cockatiels who spawn in savage deserts and temperate grassland. Unlike their basal equivalents, giant cockatiels are larger than a grizzly bear. They appear in clusters of five to ten individuals and may cause annoyances to a fortress, primarily through job cancelations.

Giant cockatiels are difficult to capture and difficult to hunt, but they can be used to start an exotic egg farm, if you manage to nab a breeding pair. Because they are flying savage birds, they may cause problems on the sliver of a chance that they appear in an elven siege. Unlike their brethren, they lay eggs two to eight a clutch.

Some dwarves like giant cockatiels for their crests.
