A client where I worked asked me if I wanted a bird. At first, I thought she said a cockatiel, and I said sure. Then when she walked in the door with this white bird in this little cage, I fell in love. She was only 1 and 1/2 years old when we got her, so she acclimated right away. Daddy fell in love that night too..

Hi! My name is Calista

I am an Umbrella Cockatoo from Sahuarita, AZ.

Bratt, Baby girl, sugar-butt, spoiled cotton ball,

13 years old   F

Umbrella Cockatoo

Cheetos. I also love anything that comes out of a bag. I can open a bag if it needs opening, and if my mommy takes too long to get me one I will go and get one myself. I'm only allowed a couple. I also love apples and mashed potatoes. And I lose my mind for a sip of milk!!

On My PEOPLE! I can also sit under their shirts cuddling for hours~On top of the computer screen and on my mommies arm that she types with.

I do not like strangers. I also don't like when mommy holds Yogi, my brother. He is the only flock member that makes my feathers in a bunch if I see him on my mommy! Not even my daddy can hold me back! And, I also hate it when my family leaves the house and I have to go into my cage.

They spoil me rotton. They teach me words, colors, etc. Mommy says I am full of spirit! I let my owners do ANYTHING to me. I am extrememly tame and love to have my feet kissed and my belly kissed. Basically, kiss me anywhere, I love it!

I will attack my mommys purse, keys and shoes when I think she is getting ready to leave. Its these items that seem to be with her whenever she goes anywhere. My mommy has tried to be sneaky but I always know!!.

Play every day in your water dish!.

  Hello Dear Friends,

I was wondering if you could attend a bridal shower tomorrow night, Friday from 7:00-9:00 EST for Asha. It will be held on Asha's page. Stubby will be attending a bachelor party and I thought it would be a nice thing for all her friends to do for her. Sorry this is such short notice. I'm sending this to all her girlfriends. You can bring anything you like as a gift. If you can come please let me know tonight.

Thanks so much, CoCoPuff

  Hi Calista
Good to hear from you, it's been a while. Thanks for the sweet compliments. Your a very pretty girl yourself..Mom went to a birdfair and got to play with a baby umbrella that was just starting to get it's feathers. She was on cloud nine, lol. If she has her way and could afford the vet bills she would buy every too she see's. Hope your enjoying your summer. It's been so hot here we can't get outside until late afternoon. I have a favorite tree I like to sit in and chew on. Don't be a stranger, I miss you.. Hugs, Romeo

  Hi Calista,
I have my 1. anniversary on BC today!!! Wow, that went so quick, but look at all the wonderful friends i have made!
It's great! I'm so glad mum put me on here & she is too, b/c she made friends too!
Was a very cold wind today & you can tell winter is on it's way! I just went into my cage, after i had a big screaming session. Now i'm sitting nice & quiet under my yellow snuggly, Louie's mum made for me! Mum can hardly see me, but it's nice & cosy!
Here's a vote for you & a big hug from Jivu♥, the anniversary boy!

Romeo here flying by with a vote for you. It's time for bed, so I can't chat long. I get real cranky when it's time for bed. I don't take naps during the day so I'm always tired early. Have a good night Luv U.

  Hi Calista.
Thanks for your visit. I hear it's a long w/e in America. so have a good one & lots of fun! Here it's just a normal one & it won't be as good as normal, b/c my dad has to work on Saturday! Mum saw the black toos again, very close up, but it wasn't any good for picture taking, b/c it was all against the sun! But she had her camera with her!
V4u & big hug,
Jivu ♥

  Hi Calista,
thanks for visiting me! Nice to meet you!
Actually they are not palm cockatoos, but yellow tailed black cockatoos! The palm cockatoos are very very rare & live up north! I'm an only bird & all the other ones in my gallery are wild ones from around here!

Hope ur Mom had a good Mothers day. Mom's had a great one. Her son made her breakfast, gave her a yellow rose and made her a garden plaque. CoCo did her love dance this morning which she won't do very often, I of coarse gave her all the cuddles she could stand. I think we all made her feel appreicated. Thx for the vote, here's one for you. Chat with u later Romeo

  Hiya from Cisco!
I HATE gloves! I scream like the dickens whenever I see them! Then sit and shiver for a long time after their gone. My cage is in the living room, so the new rule is anyone wearing winter, work, or gardening gloves must exit the house through the kitchen. My mom says you are absolutely gorgeous!
