Hi! My name is Oscar

I am an Umbrella Cockatoo from Dublin, CA.

Oscars

23 years old   M

Umbrella Cockatoo

Wood, shiny things, wood, cashews, wood, cheese, wood...

I like to hang out on the floor with the dogs. Plus, it's easier to reach people's toes when I'm on the floor!

I hate sunglasses and headbands! Attack!

My Mom adopted me and got me a huge cage and tons of toys. She takes me on fields trips, showers with me and loves to cuddle as much as I do!

I talk with a South African accent! I like to climb down off my cage and hang out on the floor with the dogs, but my Mom won't let me stay there. She always picks me up, returns me to my cage, turns her back and I race down off my cage again! Why won't she just let me hang on the floor?!.

  This is Rocky here and I am on a mission to get my good friend Lady Bird BOTW. She is a very sweet girl that has been through alot in her life and she really deserves to be BOTW. I would like to ask you if you could stop by and give her a vote everyday this week and show her how many good friends that she has out here. She also has a new sister named Dutchess and her mommy rescues abused birds and she is looking for any advise that you might have on helping her with Dutchess. Dutchess is a macaw and she was abused very badly and she is a biter. So if you could help her out with Dutchess she would really appreciate it. Thanks and PLEASE help Lady Bird out this week, she really deserves this award.... Thank you! Now to find Lady Bird, just go to the top of your page and hit the profile button, then type in Lady Bird where it says Search Name. She is the only cockatoo there the rest are macaws. Thanks again and I hope that you have a great day and I am also leaving you a vote to. Love, Rocky♥ R(*><~)R

  HI OSCAR
As you all know we all stuck together and voted for Braveheart everyday and now he's BOTW. I am hoping we can do it again for Cory. He really deserves it to, he was abused very badly to and he is blind in one eye from being hit so hard in the head and he can't even stretch out his wings because he was kept in a cage way to small. So can you find it in your hearts to vote everyday for him to and lets make him the next BOTW. Thank you very much. Love, Rocky? (*><~) p.s. to find Cory, just go to the top of the page and hit the profile button, then type in Cory where it says name on the left side of the page. He's the only Cory on here so he's easy to find. Thanks

You know what I mean, don't you? She said that I can use this one for dinner time so I can eat with my mom at the table. I like that idea!! So are you ready for turkey day? I can't wait! I love eatting!! Well cuttie, I better get going. Thanks again. I have alot of thank you notes to write. Take care and have a great weekend. Love, Rocky♥ (*><~)

  HEY OSCAR!!!
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 Oscar
How's your wkend been? I'm making the rounds saying hi to everyone & catchin up. Mom's at work so I get to play on the 'puter til she gets home & she never knows! I am getting a new sister this wk. Mom doesn't work alot just 3 days a wk but sometimes she has to work 16hours at a time so she decided that I needed a friend for when she was gone. She didn't want there to be any romantic tensions between us so she decided on another girl, a lil umbrella. We are still thinking of names: Delilah, Skye, Chloe,Gabby, Bambina, any suggestions? She is moving in on Tues this wk so come by I'm sure mom will have lots of new pics up soon. Kisses, Fergie

Come visit me, Fergie & Gabby.

  Hi Oscar
Hey big boy! Just thought I would stop by and let you know I think you are about the most handsome U2 I have seen in a long while! And just so you know I walk around on the floor all the time. My mom lets me play with the dogs, they are actually smaller than me! Sometimes I flap my wings and scream and chase them thru the house! Mom makes me quit...she says that is a good way for someone to get hurt...but I can tell she thinks its funny too!! Give me a shout when you get a chance! (I voted for you!)

Come visit me, Fergie & Gabby.

Mom made a wood toy as a 4H project, Auntie Tina emailed a photo of a plastic Pvc toy that she wants to make if Auntie makes one so we know how. My Mom still has not taken a picture of me with the toy so that I can have it, she got a blue ribbon for it, a blue ribbon for me too. The toy is made out of wood pieces plain and colored and pieces of wood from Menards. Hope Mom knows how to tie good knots so I dont fall and so my toy does not fall apart, I am sure it has to be for me.

Thank you for the compliment. You like wood? Bet it does not last long. I like the recycling items, great fun. My Mom did make a toy out of wood for a 4H visual art project, I am waiting for her to let me have it, it is huge and all the other birds here are small like doves, budgies, and lovies so it has to be for me. I hope you are having a fun-tastic day with your wonderful Mom.

You are rather handsome. I am happy you have a forever home. Dublin, great name. My Grandma and Mom hope to be able to go to Ireland to see friends of theirs in Cork. I hope one day my Mom will get another cockatoo, a male but I am only 1 and very loud, dont know if she wants 2 of us being noisy.
