Granny saw me at the store. I liked her and she was impressed with me. When she told Grandad about me and brought him to see me, I grabbed him by the overalls and told him in my sweetest voice, " I love you" His heart melted and mine did too. He told Granny that he wanted me for a Father's Day gift. So she bought me for him and we went home...I am so happy.. Awards

Hi! My name is Fortune

I am an Umbrella Cockatoo from Konawa, OK.

Honey Bunny; Misfortune; Pretty Boy; Onery booger; silly birdee

17 years old   M

Umbrella Cockatoo

Grapes, Apples, Crackers...the good ones only, mind ya...Bananas OOOh, Fortune loves banana.

I hang out with people... mostly Granny. Other people like Grandad are too jumpy..when I bark like a rottweiler and run toward them they run. hehe Playing with toys in my cage is fun too. I like to cuddle with people who will scratch my feathers.

I hate to be interupted when I finally get Granny to play with me. Every afternoon when it is my time to play with her, someone tries to take her away from me.

Going back into the cage before I get good and ready.

Bird Food...more people food Pleeeaaassse! I don't care if it is not as good for me.

What is wrong with chewing on the baseboards? People are so uptight.

My owner Bob will pet me. He lets Granny take care of me but sometimes I chase him. He looks so funny when he tries to get away. I don't really want to harm him. He is just too funny. Granny always scolds me. So I have to be good. I love Grandad, just don't tell him. OK? He might stop playing chase with me.

I will not stay on the parrot stand. I want to go everywhere on my own. People just don't trust me. People say I sound like a small child. My former owner had a little girl, Hey, I like her voice better. I love to dance and sing..

"I love your crackers".

  Hi Fortiune!! BBFF!!
Mom and I were just thinking about you so I asked her if I could fly by for a visit! Have you met my new sister, and the baby of the flock? Her name is Dew Drop. She has a page here, too! Boy, did I have alot to eat on Thanksgiving. I got to spend most of the day with my mom while she cooked. First off I helped my other mom make a special birdie bread for all the birds in the house with lots of fruit in it as well as fresh apple and cranberries. I had to check out the turkey while she was stuffing it. There were all sorts of goodies I just HAD to taste either while mom was cooking them or later during dinner. I had to taste EVERYTHING (turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, jellied cranberry sauce, pasta, and even the homemade giblet gravy). Mom was shocked when I liked everything and kept going back for me. She even took a pics of me sampling her dinner! Well, I gotta fly. Here's a vote for you! Hope you can fly by real soon for a visit! Feathery hugs and kisses, Jingle, Honey Bun, Sweetie, and Dew Drop

  Hey! How’s it going? Sorry I have not been around much. I have some exciting news! You know how I’ve told you that Francis is wild. Well, yesterday I was cleaning his cage and he got out! I thought OH NO I’ll never catch him! When he landed, I put my finger out and he hopped right on it! I couldn’t believe it! So right now he is sitting happily on one of my horse figures (there’s a picture on his page) bighting the horses ear! He loves flying around in my room. Come on by and see his new pictures and updated page. Tweets! –Francis and Hana-

Come visit me, Francis.

  Hey Fortune
Sorry I've been off the site for most of the summer. I would have loved to try my wings at baseball. My Mum played softball since she was 9 yrs old, So I assume I would take to it well. But, alas I've been spending the summer at the race tracks here in Northern Califonia where my PaPa is the Nascar announcer. I just sit on the steering wheel of our R.V. all day watchin the race cars go around and around. I get to hear my Pa on the radio as well. Hope your team did well. Let me know for next year. Did you see I made the back page of Bird Talk? Mum and Pa Pa say I'm their Cheers, Freddy

  Hi Fortune!
Wow! Me and MoonBeam have been so very busy! Sorry for not writing more often!

Guess what!?! We have a new 'baby' sister. She is 5 1/2 years old and she's lots bigger than me. Her name is Pretti, the African Ringneck. She really likes to bite my mom, but not my dad, too much. She likes to talk with my mom, but she likes my dad to talk to her. She's a funny sister! She makes 'Kissy' noises and says 'Pretty Birdie' and lots of other stuff. Don't worry, I still get most of my mom's attention (LOL). Pretti helps me with that by biting my mom ;-) She's actually coming around though and not biting as furiously as she used to a couple weeks ago when she first moved here.

Anyway, me, MoonBeam and Pretti have been out and about outside with our mom and dad every so often when the weather's nice and not raining. We're all having lots of fun now that it's summer.

Well, take care! I'll try to write again soon!

  Hi Fortune!!
It's Ritch. Sorry I haven't talked to you in while, it's been very crazy around here. My mom's mom, or my grandmother is moving to her new house in Harpursville because it is all fixed up and my grandmother and her mom have been having some problems. Now she can hardly see me because her grandmother doesn't want me to go over her mothers house and it has been very chaotic around here because of that. From all the stress around here Yum Yum doesn't know what was going on and he started to nip then started biting. My mom and her mom knows it's not his fault but he got so stressed out that he just sat in the corner of the cage and didn't eat or drink. Mommy tried to give him some water and food but he didn't take it. So we found some one who would want a Conure and we gave him away. It was a sad day for all of us to loose one of our oldest pals but we get pictures every once in a while to see how he's doing. At least he's in a quiet home now. Mom never wanted to give him away but we knew he would die if he didn't eat. Mom was hoping that she would never have to give away one of her birds. She wanted a successful flock and she now says that will only happen when the feud between my mom's mom and her mom stops. Well, this is to Yum Yum. May you have a successful and long life in your new home! Ritch

  Happy July fro Caymus!
Hello Fortune! ***Hey Konawa gang...where are you? Hope all is well; we miss ya!*** Please excuse the “form” email but it is the only way I can catch everybirdy up on what’s been shakin’ without sounding like a broken record. Anyway, we’ve all been very busy with yet more projects around the house. Mom has permanently put my cage out on the back patio and (drum roll please) bought me a nice new (bigger..yippie!) cage for the living room. She got kind of tired of rolling me in and out of the house and my water dish splashing all over the place. I started a few conversations with the neighborhood Mockingbirds, but the Blue Jays and Cardinals are still scared of me. The Pelicans fly too high for me to talk to, and I HATE, HATE, HATE the stupid vultures that sometimes land of the neighbor’s roof. I’ll scream my head off if I see one of these buggers! I’m getting along well with my skin-sis while she’s on summer break. Some days she goes to camp but on days she is home I make sure she doesn’t sleep too late and get her up around 9-9:30am, which is pretty nice of me considering I’m a Conure and I love a good morning yell! On the other wing, she does give me a treat for letting her sleep in a bit and I’ve helped her clean out her room, which is her project for the summer. And if you can believe, she came up with that project all on her own without any instruction from our parronts! Let’s see…what else? Oh yes, the back patio…well you know the one I’m on is screened in. Well mom and dad decided they want to lay a brick patio on the outside of the screened room, too. So this weekend mom started tearing up the grass and she’s got about half of it done. Next she has to level and tramp down the existing dirt, then spread paver sand on top of that, and then finally she will have to put down each paver, one at a time, leveling it out and fitting in the next one. Daddy wanted to hire someone to do it, but mom’s got her frozen lemonade and her big umbrella all ready to go and told daddy she wants to design her own patio and if it takes all summer, that’s ok. Daddy just has to supply the materials and mom will do all the work. And I’ll supervise! hehehe Dad’s bettin’ she cries “uncle,” but if I know mom, she’ll complete the project to perfection. I’ll let you know how that turns out. Oh, and last thing…I heard a firecracker go off a few nights ago. Scared the bejesus out of me and I took cover in my happy-hut. Last night, however, it was no big deal. Sometimes the humans in my flock are louder than an entire fireworks display. (I’m sure my parronts would say the same about me.) So mom’s happy that I’m taking it all in stride and she won’t have to worry about me having a nervous break-down on the 4th of July. On that note, I’d like to leave you with my joke of the day…Q: “What would you get if you crossed the American national bird with Snoopy? A: A bald beagle! Woo-hoo-hoo-hoo!!!!! Leaving big hugs and a vote…squawk at ya later

Come visit me, Blanche, Caymus & Peachy (2004-2010) - Thank you for BOTD!.

  Hey Fortune,
Just so you know, I'm worried about you. It's far too long since you've visited the BC. You're missed!! Why, we here are so accustomed to see notes from your various flockmates here, there, and everywhere on the Bird Channel that it doesn't seem right without you here. I've been away a bit myself but only 'cause my parronts took a Colorado vacation (without me... which is ok considering they went to the mountains and saw SNOW in June!). Even tho mom's been home a week now it's taken that long to help her get things back in order so we could lounge on the BC a bit more guilt-free. The fact that it's been some 30 days since you've been here gives me cause for worry. I'll be SO happy to hear that all is well where you are and that everyone and everybirdie is A-OK. Until I hear that good news... Birdie hug to you. R ('>
