I hand fed her for the shop where i worked. she had been preordered for a client. she was very hard to wean and i spent my own time there with her. I had handfed lots of birds before but this bird was different. I lost my heart. The client picked her up after she was eating well enough for me not to worry. I spoke with her and told her please if she decided not to keep her (her first bird) connact me before anyone else. 2 months later the day before my 13th wedding aniversy, she called my husband. we picked her, her cage and everything else for a great price and on our aniversary. The client said what i felt all along, that we Belle and myself were a "meant to be". her reaction to me when she saw me was so precious and just like i had hoped it would be. We are a perfect pair..

Hi! My name is Chief Belle Baby Bird

I am an Umbrella Cockatoo from locust grove, GA.

My name is Chief Belle Baby Bird. I think thats a strange enough name. But it all has a reason. MY dada titled me Chief because my crest looks like an indian headdress and mom is cherokee. The lady that first called me Belle and mom has a granddaughter with that nickname. Mom called me Baby Bird when was very little and she handfed me at her work. I am called Belle, I like it for my name, but its still special when mom calls me BabyBird and hugs me kissing me too.

10 years old   F

Umbrella Cockatoo

My very favorite treat is fresh yellow corn on the cob, mom warms it for me and it taste so good. and I also like the shredable boxes with the treat inside called Munchablies, Kaytee makes them. Mom makes me all kinds of special foods that are good for me and I like most all, but theres a lot I havent tried yet since Im only 1.

my very favorite place is moms arms, or at least on her shoulder. MY other favorites are when mom is tired and its still early, she takes me ro bed, her bed. she watches tv with my dada and i get under the sheet and suggle real real close to mom. I make lots of cooing baby soumds , mom likes that. when i fall to sleep and she gets real tired she takes mr to my house where i sleep. And I also have a perch my dada made me in their bathroom, i can listen to the sterio while mom showers and dresses.

I hate when its evening time and I know its close to my special time with mom and she is still busy, I am anxious. I hate when mom goes where Im not allowed to go, and I cant see her. I hate when the grandkids come and they get most of moms attention. The kids are ok when they play with me, but sometimes i get jealous.

I love it that she is my mom. and that she loves me sooo much, I love that she and dada take such good care of me . I love to play with her and dada a lot. Dada is funny, he teaches me silly things to do, like be "Wacky" bird. I yell wacky,wacky,wac- ky, and he copies me. He also taugh me to be "Rock n Roll" bird. I dance and he sings and makes funny sounds. Mom lets me turn summersaults and I can be sure she will catch me. I like to lay in her lap on my back and she tickles my belly and makes baby noises. And there is a lot more too.

Mom says its quirky when I hang on the side of my cage and call for Tatonka, he is moms min pin. I call him and when he starts pass my cage I try to get on his back. I think it would be a fun ride. I also get dada upset with me when I get into a picking mood and when he holds me I try to pull his mole off his face. He dont think its funny. Mom has to save him. I am not sure if its quirky or not but mom and dada laugh when I throw seed out at the dogs, I am sharing. The white one Destini, she comes and eats the seed I drop out off the floor aroung my cage. I just try to see that she gets enough..

Snuggle all you can, cause it feels good..

I finally got my travel stand that I won from the flock giveaway. I was so happy when my mom brought in the big box and when she said that it was for ME! Boy I got so excited! I am afraid of it right now but I'm sure I'll get used to it soon. I never had anything like this before so whats a bird to do? Be scared I guess. hee hee! Theres a picture of it on my page and when I get braver and get on it then my mom will take a picture and put it on here. Well I better get going for now. I'll talk to you soon. Have a great day! Love, Rocky♥ (*><~)

  Hi again Belle....
You can't talk my ears off coz I don't have any ears. I just have holes in the side of my head...I think that's where my ears belonged. Maybe I look like your human uncle Clyde. My mom named me Clyde coz Buddy's name was Buddy & Clyde sound like Bonnie & Clyde and she thought it was cute. Personally I don't like the name...but she didn't ask my opinion. Why she just didn't name Buddy "Bonnie", I don't know...maybe coz he's a boy. we need to get your votes I'm voting for you again today. Talk to you soon...birdie hugs, Clyde

Come visit me, Clyde, Tiki, Buddy, r.i.p. 8/20/08 & Bobbi.

  Hi Belle!
Welcome to the channel! I really enjoyed reading your blog. You sound like a really neat bird and I can tell your mom really fell in love with you too! I bet you were so excited to see her again after you went to the first home. I'm an Umbrella too and I have a Moluccan 2 for a brother. I am more annimated than him and I'll do anything for a laugh. I don't know if it's quirky either, but I love making those humans laugh! (they're so easy!) I'm giving you my vote today...come visit me sometime! Birdie hugs, Clyde

Come visit me, Clyde, Tiki, Buddy, r.i.p. 8/20/08 & Bobbi.
