A friend of mine who worked with the Humane Society told me there was this resuced bird and maybe I should go see. Well after all the interviewing and paperwork I got to walk thru and meet Cuka he was in the vets office in a cage by himself. As we were approaching someone stopped to talk to Julie but I continued to him I walked in opened the cage and stuck my arm in, Julie was rounding the corner just in time to tell me "HE BITES" he walked up my arm and cuddled into my neck and my heart. He was a lil different looking at first he hardly had any feathers on the front of him, he had plucked almost all of them out of boredom. He came home with me that day and has become a part of my life. Our home includes a cockatiel "Peekaboo", a rescue cat "Cali", and our newest addition my husband Michael. Sometimes Cuka will try to chase Michael away. When Michael is BBQ chef, Cuka will stick his foot thru the cage bars and say "Some Cuka Some" he loves the warm grilled veggies. Cuka plays Cat and mouse with Cali and likes to try her food. He has quite the vocabulary now, and he has feathers that cover the front of him but still wont let the feathers stay very long on his legs.. Awards

Hi! My name is Cuka

I am an Umbrella Cockatoo from santee, CA.

11 years old   M

Umbrella Cockatoo

oatmeal banana cookies, pizza, steak

He loves the dryer, whenever I am doing laundry he wants to be inside the dryer with wet clothes or dry.

Does not like toes or maybe he just REALLY likes toes...?

My owner feeds me before she even makes her coffee in the morning.

I hop and look like a chicken when I do it..

  Hi Cuka!
Thanks for stopping by. You should see the snow we're having- we've accumulated a foot overnight! It's still coming down and it looks beautiful. This morning my Mom took me to the window so I could watch for a little while. I wish I could watch longer but the window's too chilly a place for me in the winter, of course. Have a good day, Cuka. Here's a vote for you.

  You are hereby invited... the engagement party of Buddy (Male Blue Parakeet age 2) and Daisy Mae (Female Cockatiel age 1 one Dec 7th). This party will be held on January 5th, which is National Bird Day. There will be bird seed, sunflower wine, and fruit served. There will be plenty of room for everyone, and a very fancy dance floor with flashing lights and 7 disco balls. Plus, rent-a-boats for all the other pairs to sail along the river. Daisy and I hope that you can make it! Here is a vote in hopes that you will. Buddy

Come visit me, Buddy & Angel Sterling Passed8/11/08.

  Hi Cuka!
I'm a 3 year old Umbrella Cockatoo too! We look just alike. My parents were rescues and their owner gave me to my mom and dad when I hatched as a present. Then we moved to Mexico where I'm enjoying the warm weather and all the great fresh food. I like chicken the best! There aren't many of us in Mexico so lots of people take my picture and I love to show off. I wave my foot and say Bye-Bye when people leave my house. I left you a vote! Come visit me and my friends on our page. Picabo the Cockatoo

Come visit me, Bud, Modelo, Patito, Malt & Pilsner, Squeaky- I will miss my BC friends! Love to all!, Kiwi & Button & Ivy, Scion (RIP)- Love Forever, Limon & Lima, Angel Alfie (RIP), Domingo & Picabo-Fond Memories of Fishing with Friends.

  Hello Cuka
So very happy to hear you have a good home. I am a mini macaw and did not like my last male owner so I have had a tough time getting near to my dad. My mom I love but because of that bad experience my dad has to suffer. I bite him whenever I can. Anyway welcome to the BC. We have a lot of bird lovers in Ca. who correspond with us.
I have been here since May and have met tons of new friends. I am certain as pretty as you are you will do the same. Here is my vote. Hope you will stop by and say hi.


Sweet Pea

Come visit me, Sweet Pea.

  Wonderful Cuka
Hi Cuka, you're so cute! You sound like a fun bird and maybe a bit of a handful. I'm so glad to hear you were rescued- and Cali too. We have a rescue dog. She's a good dog but I don't like it when she gets too much attention. But then she gets jealous when I get the attention. Welcome to bird eclub. Here's a vote for you!
