Cookie was part of the family before I was born. My parents bought Zeus and Venus as a breeding pair. Cookie was one of their chicks, and was hand raised from the egg. He's the only surviving bird from his clutch..

Hi! My name is Captain Cook

I am an Umbrella Cockatoo from Willow, AK.

Cookie, Cap'n Cook, Cookers and Cookie Monster.

26 years old   M

Umbrella Cockatoo

I LOVE anything warm and soft, like mashed potatoes or oatmeal.

I like to hide in cardboard boxes that I can chew peepholes in.

I don't like it when I'm let out of my cage, and no one pays attention to me! I don't like gloves, either.

I love my owners because all of them love me(and they give me food off the table during dinnertime)!

I used to be trained as a "homing cockatoo" when I lived in Hawaii. Now, in Alaska, I get out and stay the night, then come back the next morning. So far, I've managed to escape six times! I also make sure to shred any bit of cardboard in my cage to make a nest..

"I'm ruler of the roost!".

Captain Cook... I was reminded when glancing through past notes that you had managed to escape from your home for a little adventure... one that was taken in wintery months and temperatures not favorable to us birds... so thought I'd fly by and see if there was any news of your safe return to home. I fear that your long absence from the BC indicates that where ever you're at there is no internet service. Wishing you safety, warmth, and a internal MapQuest to find your way back. R ('>

Come visit me, RaneBeau ('>.

Good Monday morning to you and your flock. How's it going for you today? It is a beautiful day and I am hoping that we have warmer weather coming up. The snow melting and green grass. What a beautiful dream. Mommy said that when it gets warmer, I can go outside and take more car rides. Here's a vote. Birdy Hugs...
