Post: "Taming" found cockatiels

    We lost our cockatiel in mid-June. Kind people found birds
    that looked like him, but were not. They were not bird
    people; we are; and we now have three birds. We've been
    looking for their owners, but have been unsuccessful. Two
    are in one cage and are doing well. The other one is in
    his own cage and is also doing well. All are healthy and
    thriving. Right now they are singing and chirping.

    The question is: they now have a flock and the flock does
    not include us. We love the human-tiel interaction and
    miss terribly ours who is very friendly and likes humans.

    Is there something we should be doing to encourage them to
    bond a bit with us? I see some movement in that direction
    but I also think they know our function is to feed, water,
    and clean cage them.

    Any words of wisdom would be welcomed.
