Mom had previously had cockatiels but she kept seeing this ad in the newspaper for an Umbrella. It was me! She fell in love with me and adopted me when I was only 6 months old! We love each other..

Hi! My name is Magoo

I am an Umbrella Cockatoo from Brown Deer, WI.

Boo Boo, Goo Bird

17 years old   M

Umbrella Cockatoo

Pistacios

Top of cage on skinny bar - I spin on it really fast! So fast, the cage moves! I laugh at the same time - cracks the house up!

I hate fruit, so mom puts Fruitsation Apple Sauce on my noodles! YUM!

She's funny - takes me everywhere and dresses me up. She takes me on the motorcyle too! I ride really well. I wear a harness, of course!

When I get nervous, I repeat, "Hello Magoo - how are you?" several times in a row, fast!.

If I can't have it, no one can have it! Also, if you're on the phone, I need to be in the background making more noise than the person you are talking to!.

  Hi Magoo!
Maybe we will see you on Saturday, cuz mom is planning on being there right at noon. I'm sure it will take your mom longer than 1/2 hour to do her shopping! :) It seems like everytime mom goes to CARE she's there at least an hour or two! Mom said that the only thing that's going to stop her from getting more birds, is when there's no more room for any cages. Her boyfriend just shakes his head at her, but he is a real animal lover too. Hope to see you at CARE on Saturday. BHAK, Cooper & Max & mom Linda

  Hi Magoo!
My mom will be going to CARE on Saturday to pick up a bird that she adopted last Saturday. Her name is Crystal and she's a mealy rosella. Mom really wants to adopt Sugar (Goffin's cockatoo) but we live in a condo and can't be real loud. Mom used to have a Goffin's (before me) and really misses her, even the prehistoric dinosaur yell. :) Hope you had a great day! BHAK, Cooper & Max

We haven't been on BC in a while cuz mom's been pretty busy with school. What are the odds that both of us live in Brown Deer? :) Mom says that she never met you before (she hasn't had time to go to any bird fairs) and she has heard of Cream City Feathers bird club.

  Hi from Lonnie
Good Morning Big Bird, Magoo, I just love the help I get on BC. Today, I decided to take Zeus advice. I think and just let Ellie build our nest herself. I love her to death and just want to help but she reminds me that for safety sake I cannot put material so close to the hole. She thinks the chicks will fall out. I guess she is right, but a man likes to look out the door when resting on his nest. Our teils, Ms.Skeeter and Mr. Wishbone have two eggs already and she is still laying. Beep and Peep the Zebras have 3 eggs and are expecting on January the 6th also. I guess all good things come to those who wait. I'll be patient with Ellie. Afterall, I can't lay the eggs. hehe she is the expert there. Well, got to fly...Here is a vote for you and your flock too. It is from all of us. Yes, Fortune has the Big Head.....Patrick and I love it for him though. Happy 2008 my friend. Lonnie

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 Magoo
Thanks for your visit. Mom tried the vacuum thing with me at bath time but it didn’t do anything for me. At least not for bathing. I do love to talk and sing when the vac is going. I think it is because Mom always sings while she vacs so I decided that that was obviously the thing to do. I have been doing well with my paddling pool of late. Mom has it out for me most days and even if I do not get in I will sit on the edge of the pool and flick the water around with my beak. Mom decided yesterday that I need to get a bit more wet than is normal in the pool so I had to endure Mr Bottle. Thank goodness it tends to be over quickly and Mom always gives me a special treat afterwards. On the air con thing, I think it is just what you are acclimatized. When we lived in England I was used to cooler temps and Mom kept my room so there was never more than a 18 degree difference. So my room was not cooler than 68 and not warmer than 80. Now here in Florida I am used to having temps somewhere between 80 in the house and 95 or more when I am outside. Mom always makes sure that I am not in direct line with the AC vent so that I am not getting the cold air blowing directly on me and at night she covers my cage. The one thing about AC is it is like central heating, it dries the air out which means you may need more bathes to help keep your skin from drying out. MM

I was visiting MM and I was being beaky. I saw your comment about the ac. I have to tell you that my mom is the same way. She is always afraid that she has it too cool in the house for Moose and I. She especially worries about Moose since the weirdo is always taking a bath. YUCK! Why would you voluntarily take a bath? Mom makes me take a shower but I guess it is okay since I get to sit on my perch and talk to her while she is showering. Anyway, I completely got off the point of my blog, SORRY! mom bought us a warming perch and Moose and I absolutely love them. Mom said Moose uses his more than I use mine but we both definitely use them. Mom worries in the winter and summer that it is too cold in the house. My tootsies were always cold in the winter but not anymore. Anyway, I thought I would just mention the warming perch. I know some people feel they are a waste of money but mom is so happy she bought them for Moose and I. She thinks they are well worth the $. She said Moose and I always have warm tootsies...even if Moose baths himself in his water bowl. he he he! Anyway, I hope I am not being beaky or prying...I just thought I would tell you about them. Take care! ~TOOTLES~

  Hi Magoo and Sarge
It is toasty here in Florida. The last few days it has been in the low 90s and very humid. Today it is a bit cooler (87) and we are getting some much needed rain. I just hope Mom doesn't get any ideas about putting me out in it. I am not big on taking bathes so sometimes when it is warm and there is a steady but gentel rain Mom will put me out in it for a 'natural shower'. Natural my tail feathers! There is nothing natural about getting wet. hehehe. MM

Dont feel dumb about not knowing you can post more pics. I didnt know for about a week until someone wrote me and asked me to post more. My boyfriend has come a long way. From yelling at my M2 and covering his cage all the time, to having pictures of our babies in his wallet and on his phone and showing them to everyone like he is a proud papa. When I went to buy Simon, I let Alex{boyfriend} pick out the cockatoo. I wanted another M2 but he chose Simon. Now I am so glad that he picked Simon because Simon has bonded with both of us very well for now.Well talk to you later, the other half just came downstairs, Raven

  Hi Magoo
Love your pics. You look alot like me. Are you a larger than average U2? We do have some of the same outfits, although I think you have more than me. I only have the tux, sweaters, and four different flightsuits from birddiaper.com. I have some other shirts that mom modified from doll clothes or dog clothes. Mom wishes there was another website to order from. If she could sew she would start a business making them. Mom wants to enter me in a patriotic contest. She wants to make me clothes from a bandanna she bought but she has a broken finger and doesnt know if she can sew or not. She might just order me the uncle sam suit. You have that one right? My other clothes are a size 14 and they are really tight on me. The sweaters are ok but mom thinks maybe I should have a larger size in flightsuits. McCartney is a really big birdie also. He wears the largest size flightsuit. Well gotta fly now, heres a vote for you, your friend, Simon

Mom grabbed that photo somewhere, never ever go out without a harness, even if we are well trained we could spook and panic or be chased by a strange cat or dog and with the harness or in a carrier we are easier to retrieve. I dont know yet if I get to go show off at the 4H Expo, one of us birds gets to go. I have not even been in my new carrier yet, I vote for me. Do people think you look spectacular on the motorcycle? I guess Mom is going to summer camp in a few hours then home then at 6:45 off again to Young Womens. Well I know she bought me a new toy, just dont know when she will give it to me. My Grandma took 80 out of the bank to get a chinchilla and Mom lost it somehow and he is so cute and Mom really wants him, he is 89 plus 8% tax, cheapest chin in town for a long long time usually 180 or more. I hope you have a fun-tastic day.

  Hi Magoo
You are so lucky that your mom knows someone who can make birdie clothes. I have two flightsuits and a sweater from the flightsuit place. My brother Simon has the tux and a few more things than me because he was here first. He has a harley shirt that mom made out of a teddy bear shirt. She cut out the sleeves so his wings would go through but she hasnt sewn around the edges yet and it is fraying. My dad didnt used to be a bird person either. When mom and him first met she had a M2 and a G2. Joey, the M2 hated men and dad was no exception. Dad hated Joey because of his screaming and he would always attack dad. Mom didnt care though and told dad Joey wasnt going anywhere. Then Joey started plucking really bad. Mom tried for a year but he just got worse. He would scream every time dad was in the house sometimes for hours, so mom had a woman friend who doesnt like men either, she knew joe and mom asked her if she would take him. She was so happy to have him, and they are still together ten years later. Dad became a real bird person when mom bought simon. He helped handfeed him, and Simon is daddys little boy. Dad even drove a thousand mile round trip to adopt me. He has really changed from a mean man who would hiss at poor Joey and tell him to "shut up" all the time, to the sweet dad he is now, always buying us things and even sleeping with Simon. I think that some men have never been around birds before and dont understand anything about them until they live with them awhile. Im so happy that your dad has finally come around. Mom says she would not give us up for anything or anyone. Well gotta fly now, talk to you later, McCartney

  Hi Magoo....
Boy, your motorcycles skills are amazing. I think I might be scared if mom put me on hers. It sure makes a lot of scary noise. I do talk some. Mom calls me A.D.D. bird coz I get mixed up. I say things like "how you are", "hel-row" and "I ruv you". Seems like I have trouble with the "L" sound...hmmm, maybe I need a speech therapist. No matter...at least I know what I'm talking about! I can also say "bad bird", "good bird" and "bird bird". I learned the latter from my Moluccan brother. I don't know what kind of bird a "bird bird" is, but I say it anyway. Guess that's all for today. Have a good one....it's hot here! Clyde

  Hi Magoo, from Jivu!
Thanks for visiting me! How are you today? I'm ok, it's still wet & cold here. Hope you can stay cool in the heat!
My name means the colour grey in Suahili. Mum & dad were looking for a name for me for a while, when they finally came up with that, since dad's native tongue is Suahili & my second dominant colour is grey! They tried green first, but that's a real hard word in that language.
I got used to it & always say:'bad boy, Jivu", when i do something naughty! My mum's got a german accent, when she speaks australian & a lot of people ask her about it!
Have a good day, ciao from Jivu

Come visit me, Hi everybirdie, i'm back!!!!.
