I've always wanted a parrot because of exposure to my aunt's amazon. I promised my daughters we'd get a bird during their teen years. We discovered Bruno at a pet store and fell in love instantly.. Awards

Hi! My name is Bruno

I am a Rose-Breasted Cockatoo from Lansing, IL.

Little Pink bird, Snugglebug, Pigeon - only when I'm behaving badly

10 years old   M

Rose-Breasted Cockatoo

Whole grain pasta, veggies, especially broccoli and PEAS and fruit occasionally. Scrambled eggs are tasty too. At special times I get a taste of unsweetened apricot jam.

Anywhere on Mom or my sister Mandy, playing "pigeon chairs" in the dining room (my bird version of musical chairs), or clearing all papers from the dining room table.

Butterflies freak me out and I'm not too fond of large, fluffy snowflakes either. And don't put kiwi in my bowl - yuck.

My family loves me, takes care of me and provides me with lots of fun toys and attention. Mom and my oldest sister unroll my feathers for me and massage my feathers. I'm not as bonded with dad or my other sisters but they're ok too. There's a lovebird named Prism in my flock. He's all right as long as he's in his cage and doesn't fly into my personal space.

I give "high fours" and "low fours" to greet my 2 legged flock members..

Watch out for your toes when I'm in the floor..

BOO- it's Jack and I'm FINALLY back! Man, it's been a long couple of weeks without our IP service and I've missed my mates terribly! So what's been happening with you? Staying out of trouble? I would love to tell you that I've been good....but, know me- TROUBLE and MISCHIEF follow me everywhere ALL the time! heeheehee. My list of naughtiness has grown to epic proportions, so I'll just pick out some of the best to tell you about. Here goes....I ate the stinky mutt and tossed his whole bowl of good-o's across the kitchen floor and up the hallway, I tossed a full cup of coffee over mum's pile of clean laundry, I dropped yukkie broccoli on the unsuspecting kitty and then she groomed herself and threw up all over mum's carpet, I bit a big hole in the fly wire on the window, I got to the peanut container and helped myself to most of the macadamia and almonds so now there are just crumbs (heeheehee), I did an autopsy on mum's good sofa and found it doesnt breathe cos it's only full of foam and I discovered how to make confetti out of mum's new book - I dont know why she was cross about that one cos it was only borrowed from the library- it's not like I DESTROYED her property or anything!!! Well, I gotta keep flying cos I've got a lot of squawking to do- please excuse the generic message, but I've got to catch up on the last two weeks. Hope all is well with you mate and AAAAARK, it's good to be home!....Love Jack av4u2. PS- Where have you been mate? Dont you know the BC needs all the Rosies it can get? I sure hope everything is well in your bit of the universe.

Come visit me, Tico, SECURITY ...GRRRR, Jack..goodbye BC mates, thanks for all the love !, Apollo & Mr BB and Honey.

Howz it going mate? I forgot to stop by and let you know that there is a big party on Maxies page today. maybe you could get your mum to make you a Fantasy costume and fly right on over- it will be a lot of fun and a great way to meet some new friends. Dont worry if you dont have a costume, cos all birdies are invited and welcomed regardless. Hope to see you there....Love Jack av4u

  Flyin By To Say Hi Bruno,
Yes it's much the same with my mom and dad and the toe nail clips. Mom was screeching pretty good tonight because I drew lots of blood on her arm as I slipped and tried to hang on. I can't help it and the concrete perch doesn't seem to help keep the nails trimmed. So I suspect the nail trim will come this weekend when mom and dad can retry the tag team. I don't particullary mind the towel but I know what you mean about clenching my feet shut so they can't pry them open, hehe. I have one nail that even if you just clip the smallest portion of the tip it bleeds so the folks are going to try the dremel again. I think Mom will have to stop by the store though and see if she can find a finer tip that what she currently has. We are hoping this time will be easier and I won't bleed. Anyhow, gotta fly as it's past my bedtime. Another v4u.

Love Sasha

Come visit me, Captain (Cappy), Rudy, Dory & Dixie.

Howz it goin mate? I am sooo happy to meet you, my name is Jack and I am a Rosie too! Oh boy, this is so fantastic- in the last couple of weeks there has been a much needed influx of Galahs here at BC. I was a lone Rosie here for so long, but now I am doing my little happy dance, Actually, I am kangaroo hopping all over the place!!! You know my little friend, we share many similarities- I adore toe chomping, peas and scarmbled eggs also! What was with that Bird Store where you came from? Sounds like the people there are extremely ignorant...a freak of nature indeed! Hmmmpff- I have only one thing to say to that...AAAAAAAARGHHH!!!....Love Jack av4u

Well it looks like you have a great home and are happy and well taken care of. Feel free to stop in anytime. We could be BFF. I talk quite a bit when mom is out of site and am rather quite when she is around. Though I am starting to become more vocal in company. Mom says she doesn't understand half of what I am saying ... but I am just practicing hehe. The other day I rattled off a whole sentence that didn't make any sense but had the folks captivated by it. Hehehe. I will really surprise them one day when I actually make sense.

Well, gotta fly for now. V4U.


Come visit me, Captain (Cappy), Rudy, Dory & Dixie.
