I was still just a baby birdy, living in the back of a bird store in Berkeley where my sister and some baby CAG's kept me company. I rarely had the chance to show people how adorable I am, so I only saw the employees who handfed me regularly at the store. One day, a nice couple came to visit the baby CAG's..but before they even laid eyes on the grays, the lady saw me and got very excited. She quickly forgot about the other birds and asked to let my sister and I out to be pet. I was so excited to meet new people and I just loved all the attention they gave me. Of course, I'm much more cuddly and adorable than my sister, so the couple seemed to favor me. They promised to bring me home with them once I was fully weaned and they came back to visit me each week until I was ready. Even though they said I was their first bird they still manage to know how to make me happy..

Hi! My name is ♥Beaker

I am a Cockatoo from Antioch, CA.

Love-Dove, Beak-Beak, BeakyButt

8 years old   M

Cockatoo

Nutriberries, Snap Peas, Avi-Cakes, Mashed Sweet Potato

On mom or dad's shoulder, my hanging manzanita "tree", my window perch, or my favorite...any visiting guest who doesn't fully understand the depth of my cuteness yet =)

When someone won't share their human food with me, even after I attempt to charm them with my coos and dancing

My parents are the best! They do whatever they can to keep me happy and busy. I get a lot of noggin-massages along with help preening those hard to reach spots, I've got a huge, white birdy-mansion that's filled with toys, a fun hanging manzanita "tree", my own blanky, the coolest doctor in the world, and...what was that? No I'm not spoiled...I'm LOVED! And being the incredibly lovable guy I am, I deserve no less, don't you agree?

I hate to take showers and get wet, but I love drying off in the sun and rolling around on a towel while mom blowdries my feathers.

Got cuddles?.

Hey Beaker, thanks for the warm welcome and the vote. You are just as sweet as Daisy told me you were. Hey, a really cool thing seems to be happening...I've gotten so many votes my 1st few days on the BC that Mommy thinks I may actually stand a chance of being BOTW!! Do you think you could help me out here by flying by everyday through Sat. and leaving me a vote? I don't know if a quaker has ever had such a prestigious honor, but Mommy's going to check when she has more time. Today is her day at the bird rescue, so she has to "fly"! :) Thanks for being such a great friend! And as always, here's a vote for you, too. ~~ Feathered Hugs from Little Lucy P.S. What do you think of what Lucy and I have done with our names??♥

Hi Beaker,,
Thanks so much for the vote.. Heres one for you... Yes,, I know what you mean,, I would be upset if Mom got another Bird,, Although she did have a Baby LoveBird for a while... He also didn't want much attention,, I would always say Hey BabyBird... He was cute.. Mom found him a really good home... But,, I like being the number One Bird in this Greyhound House... Have a Greyt day and I will catch you later.

Hey Beaker, You sure have a wonderful home. I loved the picture of you wet, you looked so funny-I can look like that after a bath too. I hate when mom does my bath, I only like to bath in my water dish, mom hates when I do that cause I boo boo in it. She constantly has to give me fresh water. Anyway, My name is Bailey and I am a Male Quaker Parrot, I am the plain Bird with a colorful personality as many would say. Fly by anytime and say Hi. ps here's a vote. Bailey:)

  Hello Beak-Beak!
This is the first time I have slowed down to read your profile when visiting you. You sound like a very fun happy bird. I like you hanging out on guests until they see how cute you are. Poirot thinks along the same lines. He says he is a cutie- pie......... I got my new cage. It needs a couple more perches and toys, then it will be home. I will try to get pictures of it on my page some time. I have been spending most of my time outside in an aviary. I really like it there. Mama has rethought my situation. I will be allowed to decide if I want to stay or leave when I get older. I am almost eating on my own now. I just can't get enough down to satiate me. You would not believe the amount of food I am going through. I think crickets are just to die for. YUM!!! I have not learned to speak yet, but when I am calm I make the cutest little chirping, bubbling sounds. I gotta fly now. Talk to you soon. Saphira

  Hello Beaker!
We are all writing this blog together and sending it to all our birdie friends. Mama has been too busy lately to help us write very much, so we thought we would catch up with everyone this way. Saphira is flying very well now. A cage was ordered for her from ebay, so it seems she is here to stay. Her personality is showing through. She is sweet while at the same time feisty and self willed. She is picking up and playing with everything but cannot yet eat on her own. She is spending most of her time outside in the aviary where Pringle joins her in the afternoon. Pringle has decided that it's time to nest. She has become much bolder than usual and flies into the office when the printer is on. There might be enough room in it for a nest. She goes to bed early to try to prevent nesting behaviour, so Saphira gets to play in her cage for while in the evening. There is a new picture of her playing in Pringle's cage on her page. Poirot is as crazy as ever. He wants to star in more movies. Mama made him a foraging quilt, which you can see a picture of on his page. He has started a habit of flying over, gently taking someones finger in his beak and saying, " Ow, ow, ow," in a mocking tone. He is also learning to whistle a snatch from Carmen. We hope you all have a good rest of the week.

I love the name. Very fitting for a bird. Thank you for stopping by. I am very young but like lots of attention and visitors. My big brother, Poirot, has a movie on Youtube, maybe I will be there one day too. I have new pictures up now. Today I discovered the use of my wings. Very exciting. :) Have a good weekend. Saphira
