I found him at a pet store in 1991. It was instant love at first sight. He is a wild caught Goffin that per getting information off his band, came into the US in 1990.

It's taken alot of time, love, and patience (on both our parts!) But it's translated into a bird that LOVES scritches and hugs. He's come along way from the trauma of his capture and importation.

Due to this trauma he does pluck in times of stress. But he's come along way and is a very happy and loved, and spoiled, cockatoo.

Hi! My name is Bandit

I am a Cockatoo from coon rapids, IA.

Frito bandito, Bandito, Frito

27 years old   M


I love corn on the cob, sweet potatoes, and grapes. I especially love almonds and peanuts.

Top of my cage and mom's shoulder, snuggled into my fleece blanket.

Other cockatoos, New people

Scritches. Hugs. Almonds. Car rides. Cuddled by mom in my fleece blanket. Scritchies on my beak. Hugs. More scritches and hugs. Oh, and kisses.

I love to rub my face on soft fabrics. I love to snuggle into mom's neck. I love to make birdy soup for mom when I eat..

Time and love heals all wounds....and squishie hugs..

  Hi Bandit
Charlie here. I am also a Goffin's, but Mom got me from someone who didn't want me. I can't remember how many homes I've had, but this is the last one. I am still shy. I love the scritches and being petted, but I won't step up. Mom is patient, so I know one of these days, I'll just hop up and like it. I just have to learn to trust that she's going to keep me. I don't want my heart broken again. I gave you a vote, us Goffin's have to stick together...

Come visit me, Jewely, Snowball, Pepper, Gable, PC, Kaylib & Charlie.
