We went into our Bird Rescue to visit a resident Cockatoo that we love very much. While Mommy and Daddy were checking out the other birds when they came by our cage we jumped right up onto Daddy's shoulder and began giving Daddy kisses. Mommy knew instantly that we belonged with them. So she said for my birthday present I would like to bring home these two birds. Daddy the mushy hearted guy that he is couldn't resist us or Mommy's plea for us. Mommy say's it's fate. She has always wanted a Goffin cockatoo, and lately she has been thinking alot about her Grandma and her Grandpa whom are no longer here, and her Grandma was from Argos, Greece and remembers wonderful times with her Grandmother talking about the Greek Islands and learning about her herritage, So she believes her Grandma sent me to her so she can always remember those memories when she looks at me..

Hi! My name is Argos

I am a Cockatoo from ROCHESTER, NY.


12 years old   M


I love dried fruit!! Yummy.

With my best friend Alula. We are bonded friends and I will protect Alula forever! She's my girl. I don't care if they say I'm not supposed to like Amazons as my mate, she's my girl and I love her.

Don't mess with Alula, or you will have me to deal with!

I love my mommy and my daddy because they dance with me, and feed me really cool stuff, and they saved me from that loud cockatoo on the other side of the room! My poor ears. But what I really love about them is they didn't even think twice about loving me or Alula they touched my head and they said little guy your coming home. They loved me from "Hello"

If you are not scratching me in the right place I will take your hand and move it to where I want it scratched.

I'm just as sweet as I look, or is it you think I'm just as sweet as I look, I don't know want to take a chance????.

  Hi! Just wanted to flutter by & let you know I tried the shower perch today!! It wasn't sooo bad? ! Mom acted like a nut with the water, that I wanted in on the fun too. I think I will like it better than the sink or the bowl she bought me, & has been trying to use.I think she's gonna try the music thing like you do, cause I love the radio! I hope all your feathered sibling are doing GREAT!! Giving you a vote today.

  Hello Argos
Mom and I wanted to stop by and say hi to you again today. Mom was thinking about you because she has started re-reading "The Iliad" again since it has been a few years. You are a lucky bird to have such a powerful and meaningful name (plus I'm sure it helps your Mom to remember her grandma, too!) Here's another vote for you my Goffin's friend!

  Hi again from Snuggies!
Argos, I am so sorry that it has taken us a few days to get back to you. We have been having some problems with the website and weren't able to talk to anyone! Anyways, it seems to be working fine today! I don have to agree with you about Daddys! They are all soft when it comes to birds like us. I know our Dad will spoil us rotten when he comes home in a couple of weeks and I can't wait! No more needing Mom for awhile :) It sounds like you have fun toys, too! We have a human brother who is just 13 months old and he has all kinds of fun toys. We love to dance to them when he plays the ones with music. And tell your Mom not to worry because he has a toy with "The Wheels on the Bus" and he plays it all the time, too. So far Mom is still sane! She says when Topher gets too old for some of his toys that us birds will get them! Yippy! Here's another vote for you cutie!

  Of course.
Of course they loved you from, "Hello!" You're very blessed to have happened upon two of the most loving humans I've met on BirdChannel. Enjoy the dancing! Sounds like all of you have reason to celebrate!

  Hi Argos! Here is another vote for my new cute Goffin's friend! I think you and your girlfriend are very lucky to have each other and a new great forever home! My Mom says that I have has much spunk and punch as the big 'toos, just in a little body :) As for my Dad, I will give him the message. The good news is that he should be coming home in May :) He's been deployed for 16 months so far and we can't wait for him to come home. See, I am a big Daddy's girl all the way. I love my Daddy more than anything in this world. Whenever he is home, I love to be with him. When he leaves then I love my Mom. Mom jokes that I am just using her until he comes back home and she is probably right :) But don't tell her I said that! Also, it is always so much fun when he comes home. Mom will tell us no more treats, and then Daddy will sneak us some more when she isn't looking! It is so great! What kinda treats do you like?

  Hello Argos - you sure are a pretty bird - first one I've seen like you! When you fluff your head feathers, do you have the yellow? I just gave you a vote cause your parents are always giving my new mom such good & helpful advice. (what does the vote do anyway?) Have a GREAT & HAPPY day 11

  Hi Argos! Welcome to bird channel! I had to stop by and meet you because you are another 3 year old Goffin's like me! Mom and I had to laugh about your whole girlfriend situation! What is it with us Goffin's having a thing for different species? I was bonded to a B&G Macaw until she passed on. I was very sad and lonely for a long time. Then one day Mom brought home a Sun Conure named Munchie and it has been wonderful bliss ever since! Snuggies
