I was looking for a cockatoo and our vet knew someone that had a new baby and couldn't devote enough time to Cleo. He was well taken care of but needed more attention. It was love at first sight..

Hi! My name is Cleo

I am an Umbrella Cockatoo from Spicewood, TX.

Pretty boy. Sweet Beak.

31 years old   M

Umbrella Cockatoo

I love millet. Cream pie too but I don't get that very often.

On my Daddy's lap.

When I have to get back on my perch. I like lap time.

She pet's me and loves me. We cuddle when she comes home from work. She spoils me a little too. Well, maybe alot!

I've developed a "quirky habit" this past year. Ya see, I'm a picky eater and for most of my life I've only eaten pellets, grapes, banana and pear. Ewwww, I won't touch a vegetable no matter how much Mom tries. Anyway, I got a taste of whipped cream once and now I think everything white on Mama's plate is good stuff. Every time she has a plate of food I want a taste. If it's white, I dive in. I've learned to taste things now and found there are lots of other things I like. Believe it or not, I even ate saurkraut. I eat some veggies now and I love pasta and rice. Things are good here!.

  Caymus' Joke of the Day!
Hey Cleo, I’m just flyin’ by real quick to tell you a “joke of the day!” (hey, no groaning…I SWEAR this one is funny!) Ok, so…..how was the Roman Empire cut in half? ??????????? With a pair of Caesars! hahahohohehehe!!! Oh come on now, you totally laughed! I saw you! (grin) Big birdy hugs and a vote coming your way!

  Hi Cleo!
Caymus here. Haven't visited your page for a while so thought I'd stop by and see what's shakin? Well mom really outdid herself this morning trying to hide my food in my cage. Both food bowls (one with pellets and dried veggies), the other with my Beak Appetite) were covered in paper towels and popsicle sticks. That took me all of 20 seconds to destroy. Then she had my brocoli clipped to the bar cages. It's now half in my belly, half flung across the floor. And that silly little green barrel had a nutriberry in it. Wow. I guess mom thought that since she took that "enrichment" toy out of my cage for a few days I'd forget how to open it. What do I look like? A cat? Mom's going to have to learn that she's gotta get up pretty early in the morning to fool this conure! hehehehe Big hugs and a vote coming your way....stop on by real soon!

  Hi Cleo!
If you’re taking a vacation with your parronts this year…or they going off without you (hmph!), then I’m here with Caymus’ “green idea of the day” just for you world travelers out there! 1) Touring a new city? No better way to see the sites either by walking or public transportation. When in Rome, they say. 2) If you must rent a car, rent a hybrid! 3) When dining out, eat “local”…if in Maine, have lobster. Trip to Washington? Try the salmon. No sense having a steak in Key West when you could be dining on Stone Crab and Key Lime Pie! 4) Same for where to dine…choose a local mom and pop establishment instead of the golden arches. Helps the local economy at the same time. 5) Stay at hotels that are adopting sustainable initiatives…and use those towels and linens more than one day please! 6) When it comes to souvenirs, buy something that was locally made. I’d rather have a painting from a local artist than a Grand Canyon snow globe made in China any day. Happy trails, and don’t forget to write! (hehehe)

  Hi Cleo!
Peachy here…helping Caymus with his Earth Day campaign. While Mr. Big Beak was chowin’ down on mom’s Easter dinner Sunday, I hopped on the ‘puter to do a little research. --Did you know that recycling one aluminum can saves enough energy to watch TV for 3 hours? --Did you know that more than 20,000,000 Hershey's Kisses are wrapped each day, using 133 square miles of tinfoil? All that foil is recyclable, but not many people realize it. --Did you know if every newspaper was recycled, we could save about 250,000,000 trees each year? Unfortunately only 27% of all American newspapers are recycled. --Did you know that each year, billions of used batteries are thrown away in the United States? This constitutes 88% of the mercury and 54% of the cadmium deposited into our landfills. --Did you know that approximately 5 million tons of oil produced in the world each year ends up in the ocean? And those humans complain about how messy us birdies are??? Ha! Even Caymus isn’t that dirty and he’s a WRECK! hehehe Singing a little Canary song as I press the vote button on your page!

  Hi Cleo!
Caymus here. Today I’d also like to mention that it’s “Prevention of Cruelty to Animals” month. My little friend Pippin from Dearborn Heights, MI, along with his flockmates Dusty Beaker, Skipper, Sammie, Max and Sapphire, reminded me of that fact. Thanks, Pip! I got my green idea of the day by going to Disney.go.com/Earth, where you can preview the trailer for the new movie coming out on Earth Day. And, to celebrate the premier, the film’s makers will plant a tree in honor of every moviegoer who sees the film in the opening week. The trees will be planted in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest, which is considered the most endangered rainforest in the world. Some of our wild cousins live there…so now mom’s trying to figure out how she can smuggle me in the movie theater! hehehe Stay green my friend-hugs and votes all around!

  Hi Cleo!
Caymus here. Well it’s that time of year again when I really show my true colors and invite everybirdy our there to “go green” with me! Even my fister Peachy has gotten into the spirit…I mean, have YOU ever seen a green Canary? Rumor has it that I painted Sam the Grey green last year, so you better be careful or this year I may come after YOU! hehehe And of course, stay tuned for my “green ideas of the day” as well as some really neat quotes, and of course a silly joke or two. Earth Day is very important to our flock not just on April 22nd, but every single day of the year because as an old Cree Indian Proverb says, “only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught, will we realize we cannot eat money.”

Hey buddy! how you been, my friend? I don't know if you heard or not, but I've been organizing a cockatoo 'fantasy baseball' team for here on the BC. My roster was full almost before I even started because a lot of the birds were on the team last year, but we need a couple back ups. Are you interested? I'll let you know what to do, if you are. Let me know, okay? Thanks, bud. V4u. Speedy.

Happy New Year! I know that Peachy and I have not been around much lately but that doesn’t mean we haven’t frequently thought about all our dear friends here on the BC. We just wanted to fly by today to say that we have not forgotten about you, miss you dearly, and promise to keep in touch in 2009. You’re friendship has meant a lot to us (and mommy, too) and we all wish you joy, peace and prosperity in the new year. Ok, have to leave you with a “joke of the day….” Question: Why can’t a chicken coop have more than 2 doors?………………………………………….Answer: Because if it had 4 doors it would be a chicken sedan! hehehehe! See ya next year!

  Hello from Caymus...
Hello Cleo! I know…long time, no squawk. It’s been an interesting few weeks around here. My skin-sis just celebrated her 12th birthday and (I don’t know what my parrots were thinking) she had a sleepover with FIVE other girls. And mommy and daddy thought I was loud? Ha! A good time was had by all and only one girl went home with a tummy ache (pizza at 11 p.m. followed by chips, soda and a pickle…ugh!) and apparently dad has to repair my sis’ bed. Hey, I understand…sometimes I chew off the loops that hold my happy hut to the bar clips and mommy has to sew them back on. (grin) Dad’s two sisters also came to visit and I got to sleep in mom and dad’s room just incase I felt like imitating an alarm clock in the early morning. But even daddy said I was on my best behavior and when everyone left on Monday, mom fixed me a special plate with brown rice, chicken, green beans and grapes! Sunday mom is going to the bird show and I can’t wait to see what she brings back (feathers crossed for a Pak-o-bird). So what’s new with you? Hope all is well and I’m leaving ya a HUMONGUS hug and a vote!

How are you, my friend?? I hope you had a nice long weekend! Thanks for swinging by the other day, and sorry I didn't respond before now. I had a very busy week, and an even busier weekend! Whew I'm tired! Now it's Asha's turn to be so busy. :) The weather is beautiful today, though, so I'll probably be outside for the afternoon, and can rest. The surprise was that I got to go camping! Woo hoo! I love camping. I had a great time! We rented a camp near the water, and I got to play in the trees. In my harness, of course. Mommy wouldn't take the chance that I'd fly into the water. I'm not a very good swimmer. :) Talk to you later, bud. Have a good one! V4u. Speedy

  Happy July from Caymus!
Hello Cleo! 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!

  Hi Cleo its Jacky and Cory
Just flew in to hit the vote button and see how you are doing! We birds are very upset with our Mommy, she won't let us outside because of all the fires we are having. She says its to smoky and it will hurt our lungs. I guess she is right, we can't even see are pretty lake :( One fire is 16 miles west from small town chester and we are 10 miles east of chester so Mommy is getting our travel cages ready just in case. Well here's a big birdie hug and kisses until next time:>:>:>:>:>:>:>:>

  Hey Cleo
How have you been, my friend? Did you have a good weekend? Did you do anything fun? My mom and dad went on a long ride on the motor-cycle. That's what they call it, but I think it's a rocket, because they put on things that look like space suits, even the hats that look like they can go into outer space. I don't really like those big hats, but mommy lifted up the face part and I could see it was her. But they were gone all day, and now mommy is sore. He he. I told her she should have stayed here with me! :) Talk to you later, buddy. V4u. Speedy

  Hi Cleo its Jacky and Cory
Just did a fly by to hit the vote button and hope you and your family had a nice father's day weekend! It was okay here, Mommy and Daddy to us 2 out for a little walk, me Cory still I'm a little scare of going for a big walk. Cory has to go to the doctors, his blind eye is sticking out more than normal and he cries when Mommy rubs it (he use to like it) plus its getting this ugly stuff on it. So keep your little feet cross that brother Cory will be okay. Here's a big birdie hug and kisses!

I'm spreading the word. The fields across the street are being mowed and they are planting something, and there are big tractors. Can you say SCARY?? Mommy keeps saying it's not scary, but I truly believe they are giant monsters bent on killing all the parrots in the neighborhood. Mommy keeps putting down the shades so I'll stop obsessing. I lean way forward to look out the windows, and I get all skinny and my eyes get big. So she shuts the blinds so I can have some peace... but I know they are still out there... waiting... mommy got some pictures of them. Digital proof of their existence. Come check them out and see what you think. Don't be fooled. They don't say 'Parrot Killing Machinery' on the sides, but nonetheless, that's their true mission. If you don't hear from me anymore, you'll know what to tell the cops! V4u. Speedy
