Maybe you could check out the classifieds or craigslist for birds, there are a lot of birdies out there that need homes. I don't know what experience you have with birds and I myself have never had a budgie or cockatiel so I don't know what they are like. Just know that parrots can be very destructive and get into lots of trouble if they are carefully watched. My scoobers loves to tear up anything his beak can reach and he goes through a lot of toys.
