Yogi was rescued from a home where he was shut away in a dark room, with his only toys in his cage being a huge chain and a phone book. His cage was covered in feces inches thick, and the only food he ate for years was beans and rice and sunflower seeds. He was a plucker and had no chest feathers or tail feathers. He was cage bound, and when we first started handling him, he went into a frenzy and could not sit still! We have had him for over a year now, and he is a calm quiet bird, who has stopped plucking and picking. He is extremely affectionate and we love him like you couldn't imagine!.

Hi! My name is Yogi

I am an Umbrella Cockatoo from Sahuarita, AZ.

Yogi Bear, big boy, daddy's boy, good boy, boo-boo,

20 years old   M

Umbrella Cockatoo

Bananas, bread, whipped cream, granola, mashed potatoes, apples, rice and beans, and tortillas! I am free fed my pellets too.

In my Man Bucket!! I play in my big white bucket for hours at a time! Mom will put all the exrta pieces of wood into it and its my job to make toothpicks! No one else is allowed in it. Go see me in my bucket in my pics below!

When Esher is playing on the floor because I like to be the only one playing on the floor! When company leaves and when the mule deer are in the yard I get very upset. And if anyone comes over with a facial piercing, I will try to rip it out! If I don't like what is being served it will go flying with force! Then I laugh and laugh. Yogurt on the walls looks pretty cool to me! And, no matter what, do NOT let another bird touch my man-bucket or the contents in it!

My flock leaders give me All the freedom(supervi- sed) I want. I am happy when they take me places and I love to visit people! I am not a home-body.

I laugh like a girl! I only like to be sprayed if the vacum is running. I will yell "Hello" when someone pulls in the drive-way. I love people and will tell them "Yogi is a GOOD boy!" so they will think I am cute and pick me up. I will also yell "Papa! I love you!" when my daddy trys to put me down. That always gets me an extra hug! I love people and will let ANYBODY hold me and pet me, especially children!.

Chew up everything to make into toothpicks!.

  Hi Yogi
How wonderful for you to come by and visit..I don't see you often enough. The festival sounds really fun and I bet you did get lots of attention. I usually do when I get out with Mom, mostly to the hardware store lol..We have a big yard and I'm out in it with Mom a lot. We just have to watch for the big hawks circuling the house. You have some great new pictures up. We too's are the most loveable off all the parrots, if I do say so myself..hehe Gotta run but don't be a stranger..Love Romeo

How are you doing, my friend? Guess what? I'm going camping!! Woo hoo! Camping! Mom and dad have a cabin they are going to, and they are taking me! And my little cousins (they human ones) will be there too, and that will be fun cause I love playing with them. Yeah! So my travel cage is all ready. Actually, I have 2 travel cages all ready. One smaller one to ride in the car, and one bigger collapsible one to set up at the cabin. I'm going to have big adventures. I'll tell you all about them when I get back on Sunday, okay? I'll be gone till then, but feel free to come leave me messages and I'll read them when I get back. Talk to you later, buddy, tell Bacu I said hi. Enjoy your weekend! V4u. Camping Speedy

  Hey Yogi!
Hey Yogi, Speedy here... I pretty much fling my colored rings in the air too. Mom keeps trying to teach me my 'colors'. I tried to tell her WHO CARES... but she knows I can tell the difference. When I used to eat the colored pellets, I only ate the red, yellow, and orange ones. Plus, I'd pick one color and put them in my water bowl, then I'd pick all the same colored blocks and other toys and put them in the bowl too. One day I'd have all yellow stuff in there, the next day all orange stuff in there... but I doesn't mean I want to do that all the time! Especially one-on-one time w/ mommy. I want to run and jump and dance then... not do stupid school stuff! NEVER should have shown her I can see colors... you think it's too late to pretend to be color-blind now? I'll have to give that one some thought... anyway, I gotta go now. I have to pop a couple letters off the keyboard while she's not looking. Later, buddy! Speedy

Beautiful day here today. It's gonna get kinda hot. We have two visitors this week. Mom's friend went on a diving trip and we have her two dogs. Abby and Musho , Musho is a little fur ball pest. Abby kinda takes care of him. I'm keeping my evil eye on him to, even though he's little, he has four legs which means trouble as far as I'm concerned. And who ever heard of a name like Musho for a boy dog. They gotta be kidding. Gotta run the four leggers just came inside and I'm on watch. Leaving u a vote Romeo

  Hello Yogi!
I have that same toy! The one with the rings! I haven't used it much since my mom just got it, but she says she's going to teach my how to put all the rings on there. Do you know how to do that yet? Do you know the colors? It's a fun toy either way, though. Your wings are beautiful, too. Mine are clipped, but I saw in the picture yours aren't. They are so pretty! Come say hi when you get a chance, and here's a v4u. Speedy
