I was calling breeders listed in bird talk, and Zoey's mentioned that she had a 10 month old Umbrella. I was looking for a Moluccan until another breeder talked me out of one. I decided to go see Zoey. and that was that..we immediately connected. 2 years later I got my Moluccan from the same breeder..

Hi! My name is Zoey

I am an Umbrella Cockatoo from Des Plaines, IL.

ZozoBee; Toods

17 years old   F

Umbrella Cockatoo

Zoey loves ice cream!! Any flavor, any time--I think she gets that from me! Pizza runs a close second.

Definitely the Boing toy, which we recovered with polar fleece when the rope it came with was shredded.

She does not like people to wear glasses--she will fling them across the room. She does not like it when Mom gets a haircut because then she slips off of her favorite perch--the top of my head! Her biggest pet peeve is our dog Tigger, she really has it in for him.

She gives us lots of fresh fruits and veggies, and she takes us on walks outside in the summer ( she keeps us safe and never lets us go out without our harnesses on). She gives us lots of love.n

She loves to grasp both of my hands with both of hers and get tossed up and down, this is called "whoopsabirdie"- . She also loves to spend time under Mom's shirt. Another favorite occupation is baiting and stalking Tigger, who is a 90lb Briard. You would think that for sheer head size (and thus brain capacity) alone, he would have it over her, but no no.. she is way smarter than he is!.

I'm gonna get the doggy, I'm gonna get the doggy!.

  Interested In 2s
Hi there! My name is Keira; I'm a Harlequin Macaw. My mom's been looking into getting me a brother or a sister from the 2 family to play with. She's still searching for that "perfect breed." Many people have U2s and several people have told her about the Moluccans. What do you think would be a good 2 friend for me?

Come visit me, Kiera.

  Hi again Zoey!
Well mom loved the birdie smooch. She'll take a birdie smooch over a hubby smooch any day! (she's so predictable!) Well, mom wants to know the whole story about the lady with the rescues and bird room. Sounds neat, being able to fly around a room. Unfortunately my wings are clipped so the only place I fly is delicately to the floor! Yes, sad but true...I love to argue! I got that directly from mom though, she always says "that's right, you're always right" when she bickers with my dad...so me saying "that's right that's right that's right" just seemed like the right thing to say so I could get in on the argument too! I mean really, how can a Moluccan stay out of all the action!?! I also like to show off when someone comes into the house. It's so funny watching the humans laugh over something so trivial as me dancing and singing. I guess I'm just a ham! I'll talk to you soon I hope. Can't wait to hear the rescue story! Big Birdie hugs this time....Buddy :)

Come visit me, Clyde, Tiki, Buddy, r.i.p. 8/20/08 & Bobbi.

  Dear Zoey
I'm glad you came to visit me. Here's my perspective on the birdie questions....my human mom has really just let the big birds guide her in introducing me to the flock. At first I was interesting to the 'toos. Now that they figure I'm staying here, Clyde does get a little irritated at me at times. Buddy (the Moluccan) stays pretty much neutral and just goes with the flow. My mom never leaves me out alone with the 'toos for fear of them (or rather, Clyde) biting me. We also have cats, so that scares her too. Mom can handle Buddy and me on her together but Clyde gets too figidy. Sometimes Clyde goes on the playstand while mom interacts with Buddy & me. Then we alternate. I guess we're lucky birds because mom & dad have their own business and work from home. That pretty much keeps us birds busy all day. It is especially funny to see mom & dad arguing....Buddy gets in on the argument and yells at the time of his lungs "that's right, that's right, that's right!"...all while shaking his head. When mom & dad are on the road at their rubber stamp/scrapbook conventions, it can be a little boring. My human sisters stay here and take care of us then, but they're gone from about 8am-4pm...so when they get home we're ready for some attention! If your human mom wants to get another bird, I say 'go for it!'. There are 5 birds in this flock and whenever a new one came along, we got lots of extra special attention, which is fine by me! We kind of show the new birds the ropes around here anyway and that makes me feel important! So don't be alarmed Zoey, if your mom brings in a new bird. You'll still hold that special place in your mom's heart forever. When you think about it, we're all very lucky birds to have found our special humans. All the birds should be so lucky in this world. If you have any more questions, I'll ask my mom...so ask away! Birdie hugs, Tiki

Come visit me, Clyde, Tiki, Buddy, r.i.p. 8/20/08 & Bobbi.

  Hi Zoey!
Well what a coincedence! I'm an umbrella and I have a brother Moluccan!!! I thought I was seeing things when I looked at your pictures! Glad to see there are others who can handle 2 'toos also! Glasses don't bother me, but that kitty that gets in my cage every time I'm out of it does! Can you imagine?! It's infuriating...humpf - having a lowly cat get in my cage! I'm going to visit your brother now...but I'm voting for you! Birdie hugs, Clyde

Come visit me, Clyde, Tiki, Buddy, r.i.p. 8/20/08 & Bobbi.
