Yes, garlic is safe for birds, in small amounts.

Thank you! Are there specific foods/herbs I should avoid for cockatiels? Is there a website that covers things to avoid?

Things to avoid: anything that is consider human 'junk food' should be treated the same for birds. Avocado, chocolate (the darker the increased toxicity), alcohol are all toxic.
