My mommy and I originally met at a studio where she worked when I came to visit for a couple months. We bonded and then she took me home when my previous owners couldn't handle me anymore (even thought they still loved me).. Awards

Hi! My name is Bird Bird

I am an Umbrella Cockatoo from Milford, CT.

Biddlenuts (aka Bit O' Nuts)

25 years old   F

Umbrella Cockatoo

One of my faves is walnuts - I like to "unzip" the seams and get to the meat, yum! I also love fresh fruit like watermelon and bananas, and I like pasta and beans too. Pretty much I'll try anything my trustworthy humans deem okay for me.

I sometimes hang out on the room divider railing, but I mostly like to be attached to my humans at all times. I love playing in my daddy's lap under a blanket with shower rings and leather strip or wood blocks. And my mommy does lots of artsy stuff that I like to oversee and ocassionally taste.

I hate being left out of any in-house activities, as I must know what my humans are up to at all times. Oh, and I hate to hear the water running without me - I really enjoy my showahs!

My new mommy and daddy never had birds before, but they took me in last year and have done a great job of making everyday fun and interesting for me. They give me lots of love and treats and toys, and even take me for car rides!

Oh, and did I mention, they thought I was a male, until I laid an egg! Weren't they surprised! The vet says I'm okay but it turned out I had really bonded with my daddy. He's had to adjust some behaviors to keep me from laying more!

I'll climb down off my cage and walk across the room to get to my humans if they're concentrating on something other than me..

Wuh Woh!

  Well Hello there cutie. My name is Oz and I'm a Rose Breasted Cockatoo. My Mommy is my 3rd owner and she says I'm now in my Forever Home. I'm glad cause I really like it here. I live in an Avian Accent Cage (it's really a pc. of furniture and it was very expensive but Mom says that I'm worth it). I can dance and say a few words but Mommy doesn't care if I talk or not just that I'm happy. I also have a Sister, Cheyenne who is a Meyer's Parrot and Mom calls her her Miss Attitude Bird cause she wants ALL of my Mommy's attention! I also have 2 Brothers. Parker is an English Keet who's 9 months old and he talks a whole lot and my Baby, Brother, Apache is a White Faced Cockatiel who's just 3 months old and he whistle a few tunes already. Well, I have to go but I'll leave you a vote. Please fly by and see us. We love company. Bye for now.

  Hello from Merlina!
I am also a U2. My mommy has family in Milford! That is so funny. I love to be with my humans at all times, too. My mommy just gave me a neat toy. It is a swing with metal bars that go through the perch part. Before she attached it, she put these acrylic shapes on the bars for me to play with. I love to move them up and down. I will usually put up my crest and bounce up and down while I move the shape up and down at the same time. Also, she took an old t-shirt and cut strips off of it and ran them through a chain, then tied them on. You see, I have a bad habit of over preening my feathers right below my neck (not anywhere else though, wierd) so she thought this would give me something else to "preen". I have alre3ady figured out how to untie them and get them out so I can chew them and throw them down. Well, I hope you can stop by sometime real soon. Here's a vote for you. C ya later!

Come visit me, Jade, Merlina, Starburst, Pipper & Sunkist.
