This is at least my third home. Don't know why I was given up the first time. My known second home was only 5 months. The man loved me and bought me a huge cage but he couldn't get me to calm down and was afraid he wasn't giving me the home I needed. So my current family rescued me and took me in. I am in a smaller house for now but mom says I will have a mansion after I seem to calm down and become a little more sociable.. Awards

Hi! My name is Dixie

I am a Goffin's cockatoo from Luther, OK.


7 years old   F

Goffin's cockatoo

I like Cheerios, Popcorn and Nutriberries

So far I want too stay IN my safe house!

I hate fingers and please keeps your paws OUT of my cage!!!

My parronts are very understanding and loving. They are letting me adjust to my new home with love and patience and not forcing me to do anything but be me.

I jump around when I am nervous..

If I stand very still maybe they will leave me alone?.

  Hi Dixie
Thanks for your continuing votes! I love hearing from you every day, too.
Today we are taking some public transportation! Not your common bus, subway, or trolley, but the INCLINE! (Pittsburgh does have the trolleys, buses, and a little subway system as well.) For anyone not from around here, the inclines are a way to get from downtown to either Mount Washington or the South Side, depending on which one you take. The first 2 shots are the Duquesne Incline, which goes up from Station Square in town to Mount Washington, a neighborhood of Pittsburgh that offers spectacular views of the downtown area. The next 2 are the Monongahela (or Mon) incline, which goes to the slopes of the South Side of the city. Believe it or not, there used to be public steps every bit as steep as the inclines are, where steelworkers and glassworkers would climb from their jobs to their homes. Imagine going up a couple hundred steps after a long day in the mill!
The inclines were originally used for that same purpose, but today they are mostly a tourist attraction, although some folks still park up there and ride to town because parking is cheaper on the hills. If you are a senior citizen, you ride for free, the same as all the public transportation in the city.
I hope you are having a fun day today and getting some sun. It's cold and kind of snowy here. Hugs, Peppino

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Season's Greetings, Everybirdie!, PEPPINO, please vote me BOTM for the new year, Divo & Falco, Merry Christmas!.
