Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo from Miami, FL

I was shopping at a local pet shop for bird pellets and walked right up to him and we immediatly bonded. He was very quiet. The owner told me that he belonged to a couple going through a divorce and they could no longer keep him. He was SO QUIET until I brought him home. Then he proceded to ask me for kiss, "What's you name"?, "pretty bird" etc., etc.... I already have a green-wing macaw (Peanut) and an Amazon, but had no experience with Cockatoos.. Awards

Hi! My name is Wackadoo

I am a Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo from Miami, FL.


6 years old   M

Sulphur-Crested Cockatoo

almonds, strawberries, carrots, apples, cheese, and an occasional hotdog!

Anywhere near my family

To be ignored for one second!

She spends alot of time with me and my buddies, AND...she tolerates my screaming when I want to get her attention.

If I'm fed too early in the morning, I will throw it all to the bottom of my cage..

It's good to be king.

You asked for it…YOU GOT IT ! Yes, indeed, Mom and I have been workin’ on a way for me to satisfy my urge to explore AND satisfy Mom’s directive for me to STAY OUT OF TROUBLE ! ! (At least I THINK this will do it…) ~~ Buddy and I have decided that we’d like to ‘explore’ our creative side; try somethin’ new; jump into a new project; STAY ON THE GROUND ! And we thought we’d try our luck at the visual arts. You know…movies, TV. ~~ You might have noticed that I seem to excel at the dramatic. So, having been told I’d be a natural at it, I’m gonna try my hand at acting! And since Buddy’s talents lie in organization and presentation (i.e. his reputation as a ‘Master of Disguise’), AND he has one REALLY WILD IMAGINATION, he’s gonna take on the role of Producer/Director. ~~ Now, obviously, this is gonna hafta be a scaled down version. Since we operating on a scaled down BUDGET ! Each day, we’ll put a scene from a well-known movie or TV program in my main pic (‘cause we just can’t afford a real moving picture production), so you can see what we’ve been workin’ on. BUT…and here’s were YOU come in…I’m gonna be needin’ co-stars. So, you’ll just hafta take a peek everyday to see who’s gonna be in the ‘show’ with me! ~~ And to make it interesting, I’m gonna give you a clue in my note to you each day about what movie or TV program the picture is gonna be from tomorrow! Just a little way to keep havin’ fun with all my new BirdChannel f[eathe]riends. No big deal. Not a contest or anything like that. Just a game. I think I’ll call it “What’s My Line?” (Get it? Movie, script, line…) ~~ Hope you’ll play along. When I hear from you, I'll send you back a clue. AaaaaAA!! Scream at ya again soon! CRJake (Ö> Trouncin’ on your vote button on my way out…

I have some sad news..Jake,Tidbit ,Ruby and Leah are losing their furry dog brother today..poor Guinan their boxer has been sick and their Mom thinks he will be better romping and playing on Rainbow Bridge. Sometimes those humans in our lives have to make very big decisions and even though its hard for them..they love us so much that they put their own feelings aside to make sure we don't suffer. Please stop by Jake's page and give your love to his family..they need all their friends right now!! Buddy

Oh, sorry,Wackadoo. Excuse me just a minute. I gotta talk somethin’ over with my partner here. ~~~~ “Okay, now let me get this straight, Buddy. That…that…that GUY […that &%$#head…that “WISE ONE”] is tryin’ to tell us that n-o-w we hafta go on a SCAVENGER HUNT?! And the thing that’s gonna get us back home to our moms and our flockilys is some kindov FOOTWEAR??!! ~~ Now, pray tell, Pal, just where are we supposed to start lookin’ for said ‘slippers’? We’ve got no idea WHERE WE ARE! Let alone how to get THERE from HERE!! A-n-d we haven’t got the slightest idea just where THERE is anyhow!!! … Alright, I’m calm now. Now just how are we supposed to go about this little assignment, Buddy? Are these three gonna be of any better help than they have been so far? Or do we ditch them, and just rely on our own good sense? Man, I’ve been browsin’ that OZ-Net connection they showed us yesterday, and I can’t make heads or tails outta the stuff on there. There’s talk of witches, and flyin’ monkeys, and some girl named Dorothy (got NO idea on THAT one), and even some little dog named Toto. But not a s-i-n-g-l-e mention of any FOOD, anywhere! And I’m getting’ hungry, Buddy! ~~ I say we take a break and go get somethin’ to EAT!!! Are ya with me?” ~~~~ Sorry ‘bout that,Wackadoo. Buddy used up all the time I have for today.

What a beautiful spring day here in Oshkosh, WI! I think we are all twitterpated. Mommy posted a new kitten pic! It is the last one of all 3 together. The little gray boy goes to his new home today after his visit to the vet for his shots. The other black and white little girl goes to her new home in 2 weeks. Mommy is keeping the pest Patches unless someone wants her. We have several sooner cats here any one interested? I'll give them away. (Just don't tell Mommy) BTW a sooner cat is one that is sooner gone the better. tehe. Mommy took Sassy to the vet also for her blood work. Sassy is now de-stressing and sleeping. Skippy

I would like to ask all my friends here on the BC to stop by my friend Buddy's page. He's a moluccan like me and his mom went in and had surgery and there were some complications so if we could all pull together and say a few prayers for her. Her name is Kathy and you can leave her a note on Buddy's page if you want. To find him just go to the profile and type in Buddy and he's on page 5, he's the 12 year old moluccan. He has already won BOTW so he won't take it away from anyone trying to win. Thank you so much and I know Kathy would really appreciate hearing from all of her friends here on the BC... Love ya, Rocky♥ R(*><~)R XOXOXOXOXOXOXO

Thanks for stopping by. So you love the hose? NOT ME! I see it and I run or fly away! I'm scared to death of the hose. Well except when it's turned off, then I want to attack it and punch holes in it. hee hee!!! Tell your mom to make sure that the water isn't reclaimed water. That might make you sick. It's a dirty nasty water and it stinks! I'm sure she probably already knows this but just in case, I don't want you getting sick... Yeah I've been enjoying this tropical breeze that we've been getting but it almost blew me away yesterday. It blew all of my newspapers out of the bottem of my cage and my mom still hasn't found them. hee hee!! So have you been playing the BC game? It's been alot of fun! Well handsome, I better get going. Take care and have a great day! Love, Rocky♥ R(*><~)R xoxoxoxoxo p.s. ask your mom if she can add somemore pictures of you so we can see more of your handsome face. Thanks!
