:> ******* A small ad in the paper caught my eye. It said 7 year old male cockatoo for sale. I drove 100 miles to meet him, it was love at first sight! He came right to me, then leaned in & started kissing my neck. The lady & her son were shocked. They could not even hold him. I brought him home a couple days before Christmas 2002. I brought him to a avian vet within a week to have him checked over. He was healthy but had to get off the seed diet. The Dr. removed Al's leg band, he was hatched in 1960!!! So much for a 7 year old bird..

Hi! My name is Al Bird

I am an Umbrella Cockatoo from cottage grove, MN.

My daddy sometimes calls me Bird Brain.

53 years old   M

Umbrella Cockatoo

Peanut butter. I know the jar!!

There are a number of spots. My moms lap is a favorite. I like to run up the iron railing then slide down, over & over. Also mom put a cotton mop head (long strings) at the top of my cage, I cuddle inside it at night or for birdie naps. Sometimes mommy thinks I'm missing 'cuz I cuddle inside & blend in. Anoth favorite is when mom preens my head feathers!!!

He doesn't like it if you try to take his toys while he is playing with them.

My mom loves me so much. People tell her how lucky I was to have her but she says she is the lucky one. I get to cuddle under a blanket with her & watch tv. Also she lets me shower with her then blow dries my feathers.I like to sit on her shoulder & help (watch) her do laundry, cook,etc.Go to our camper at the lake in the summer.

He loves to sit on my lap and play peek-a-birdie with one of his maney baby blankets..

I know I am a pretty bird..

So, what's up with ya? Had to come by to see how you are doing, and hope that everything is going good for ya. Let me know, okay??? Hope your summer was great, and you got outside lots. I didn't cuz it was so hot here, Mom was afraid I was gonna overheat. She thought it would get better so I could go out with her more, but every weekend was hotter than anything. Now it is getting cool outside...a bird just can't win sometimes!

  Heya, Al Bird!
Figured I better check up to see how you are doing since your surgery. Sure hope you are okay, and enjoying the spring weather! Last night though it was awful bad outside with a lot of rain. And thunder and lightening. And did I say RAIN? I was nice and safe in my house, but Mom got all wet getting to her car after work. And it took forever for her to get home. I was so happy to see her though cuz I am not really liking that lightening too much. Hope your weather has been good, and that you are happy and healthy!

  Hi Al
Snowy here, just wanted to see how you're doing buddy. Hope all is well. Not too much new here today...its warm , high near 90. At least mom has an air conditioner in her office, but if she has to run out in the garage for minute, its not too much fun...Hope you have a good night and squawk by anytime...Snowy
