Hi! My name is Cooper

I am a Blue-and-Gold Macaw from SLC, UT.

"Coop","Silly Boy"

9 years old   M

Blue-and-Gold Macaw

Snap Peas, Brazil nuts & blue-berry muffins. Or anything dad's eating!

On my dad's chest while he watches TV, &
on my "massive" play gym which is near the area that my dad hangs out.

Being alone during the day! I hate it when dad eats in front of me & does'nt share. I guess there are some things I can't have.

He spoils me with treats. Showers me with love.
And he has a way cool cat that I just love.

Typical, "loud" afternoon vocalizations. Hilarious, off-the-wall posturing..

The "Utah Macaw" (climatized).

  Hiya, Cooper ! (Ö>
It seems as though our ‘Love Struck-est Birdie Couple’ for today is havin’ themselves just one glorious time. Don’t they look swell, all decked out in their ‘formal’ feathers, sippin’ tea like the high society fids? And can ya tell how excited Rocky is?! I guess Miss Fergie really is pretty shy. I haven’t heard a peep outta her the whole day. She just kindov sits there with her fella, grinnin’ and glowin’! Oh to be young and in love…. ~~ WHAT am I SAYIN’?! I ain’t nowheres NEAR ready for love!! Shucks I’m havin’ too much fun messin’ around with all my new friends here on the BirdChannel. Maybe after I’ve been here a year or so, THEN maybe I’ll consider choosin’ just one girl to spend my time with. But, geez, I haven’t even MET all the sweet young things in the BC flock, not to mention all those lovelies yet to come! I’m gonna hafta take my time about somethin’ THAT BIG! ~~ And speakin’ o’ time, we’ve just about run outta time for our Tour of Charleston. Tomorrow’s our last day on the tour. And our guests are “THE LOVE STRUCK-EST BIRDIE COUPLE on the BirdChannel”! At least accordin’ to the way y’all voted when we asked ya to. And, like I said, it’s gonna be the Social Event of the Season! And we’re gonna be havin’ it at one o’ Mom’s most favoritest places around Charleston: Cypress Gardens! ~~ Originally the site of a prosperous rice plantation, Cypress Gardens is a 170 acre tranquil swamp garden that has become a favorite destination for visitors of all ages. Flat bottom boats and nature trails wind their way through the rich landscape providing an abundance of scenic points of view. Images of tall cypress and tupelo trees reflect brilliantly in the swamp’s mirror-like black water. ~~ I just wanna make sure that you take the time to stop by my page tomorrow, and that you don’t miss what we’ve got in store for yas. It’s a really important day, and you’re definitely gonna wanna commit ‘Birdie Hari-Kari’ if ya miss it!!! ~~ Now, tomorrow’s gonna be a bit different, in that none o’ the pictures are gonna be posted until 1:30 tomorrow afternoon. (I TOLD yas that it’s a really special day!!) And we’re hopin’ you’ll ALL stop in to share in the excitement!!! ~~ Mark your calendars…and DON’T BE LATE! I’m treadin’ ever so secretly on your vote button today. (But I’ll make sure it’s hard enough for it to count!) AaaaaAA!! Scream at ya again soon! CRJake (Ö>"

  Hiya, Cooper ! (Ö>
I must say, it’s been a rather quiet day here in Charleston. Givin’ Mom and Dad the day off to relax and spend some time together in honor of Mom’s HatchDay and Dad’s good report from his Back Surgeon just may have been the best ‘Mom’s HatchDay present’ the flockily ever got! When I said it was quiet around here today, I meant MOM was quiet! She and Dad took walks on the Greenway. And Mom had girlfriends take her out to lunch…TWICE…TODAY! And she even said she’d gather all the tour info for our ‘Love Struck-est Birdie Couple’ that’s visitin’ tomorrow, so I don't hafta. (That means Yours Truly gets the night off too!) ~~ Here’s a little sample of what we’re gonna be getting’ into with them tomorrow. Picture this: “Green-yellow tea plants reach into the distance at the Charleston Tea Plantation as a green harvester slowly makes its way down one row, gently cutting the youngest leaves from atop the bushes to make them into American Classic tea. Tea at the plantation is harvested from late April through October, with the harvester gathering in a day what it would take 500 laborers to do by hand.” Does that sound cool, or WHAT?! I hope y’all will make sure and stop by my page tomorrow and say “Hi” to our guests. It sure is fun watchin’ the looks on their faces when they hear that all their f[eathe]riends have been leavin’ messages for ‘em! And, o’ course, if anybirdy has a story to tell about the two of ‘em, be sure and let us know about that too. Ya know how my mom is; likin’ to put that kinda thing on my page so’s all of us can get better acquainted! ~~ Now, about that ‘Social Event of the Season’ that I’ve been tauntin’ yas with for the past few days…Well, it has to do with THE last and most ‘Love Struck-est Birdie Couple’ on the BirdChannel right now. We’ve got somethin’ REALLY…R-E-A-L-L-Y special planned for them on Sunday. And I know that it’s gonna be on a Sunday, and the weekend, and all. But you’re just gonna HAFTA come by my page and see what’s happ’nin’!!! I can’t say any more than that (or Mom’s gonna KILL ME). But, trust me, you’ll kick yourself if ya miss it! ~~ Now, I hear I was MVP of the ‘Toos Vs Sennies’ baseball game yesterday. (And Mom thought I didn’t know anything about Baze Bol!) So I’ve got some celebratin’ o’ my own to get to. So I’m swingin’ the bat at your vote button on my way out! AaaaaAA!! Scream at ya again soon! CR Jake (Ö>"

  Hiya, Cooper ! (Ö>
MAN! You are NOT gonna b-e-l-i-e-v-e THIS! Mom got sooo excited yesterday when she saw that y’all had voted Yours Truly ‘Bird of the Month’ that she passed out, and we couldn’t revive her ALL DAY! ~~ No. That’s not really what happened. What happened was Mom’s on drugs and she spaced out and didn’t come down to earth at all yesterday. ~~ No. No, that’s not it either. Here’s what happened. Mom lost her mind and we couldn’t find anywhere! Yeah. Yeah, that’s my story and I’m STICKIN’ TO IT!!! (Actually, I found it right off the bat. But I decided I’d hang on to it ‘til today. I put it in a nice box, wrapped it in pretty paper, tied it up with a ribbon and put a nice bow on it. And I’m gonna give it back to her for her HatchDay today!) ~~ Seriously though, guys, she had a jam packed day yesterday, what with two doctors appointments (one for her and one for Dad), another appointment for her, and somethin’ she had to do last night. And, parrot-sonally, I think she was just so relieved about Dad getting’ a glowin’ report from his Back Surgeon, and you know how it is when ya get thrown off your normal schedule and it messes up your routine, she just plumb forgot about writin’ my blog for the day before she took off! By the time she got home last night, she was just plain tuckered out! ~~ But (hopefully) ‘No harm, no foul’. I’m givin’ her today off so’s she and Dad can spend some time together celebratin’ his Good News and her HatchDay. We’ll pick up with the tour, as usual tomorrow! And don’t forget, I promised ya the Social Event of the Season. It’s comin’ up quicker than ya think! ~~ So thanks for your understanding, and especially THANKS ! ! ! for all your friendship and support that got me to Bird of the Month! And I’ll see yas back here first thing in the morning to pick up where we left off on our tour!! Now here’s a vote in honor of Mom’s Hatchday and Your Love and Friendship!!! AaaaaAA!! Scream at ya again soon! CR Jake (Ö>"

  Hiya, Cooper ! (Ö>
Well, now…I guess that proves it. I’m not the ONLY birdy that likes to play in the water! O’ course, when Patrick first laid his peepers on RubySue, he DID faint. But that was at her house when we picked her up this morning. So I can’t really say that we threw him in the fountain to revive him. That would be fibbin’! But I did have some difficulty explainin’ to him, standin' in that fountain, that any umbrella was NOT gonna help him stay dry when he’s STANDIN’ in water waist deep!! RubySue thought it was romantic, so she was no help either! As a matter o’ fact, Buddy and I had a dickens of a time keepin’ ‘em outta the water ALL DAY. ~~ I’m tellin’ ya, keepin’ up with those two kept us hoppin’ all day long. They wanted to run down the pier, and stroll the beach, and walk ev’ry path in Waterfront Park! Then they had to grace ev’ry bench in the park with their tail feathers!! There was just no controllin’ those two fids. But I can’t say as I blame ‘em. They were pretty excited to be here. And we were thrilled to have ‘em! ~~ As far as where were goin’ tomorrow, I’ve been just BEGGIN’ Mom to make this place a part o’ the tour! I’m so excited about this one myself, I-I-I prob’ly won’t sleep tonight. The first shots of the American Civil War were fired at Fort Sumter. [In case ya didn’t catch the hint, that’s where we’re goin’ tomorrow!] That first shot DIDN’T HIT ANYTHING! [Sheeesh! Even I-I-I’ve got better aim than THAT.] It was a 10-inch mortar shell that exploded above Fort Sumter as a signal for Confederate artillery to open fire on the Union-held fort. ~~ And, wouldn’t ya just KNOW it…Fort Sumter is an ISLAND!!! Ya just can’t avoid the water when ya live in Charleston! (So I don’t TRY…obviously!) ~~ It just tickles Mom and me to death to know how much y’all are enjoyin’ our hometown tour. It’s gonna be really quiet around here once all our ‘Love Struck Birdy Couples’ have had their days in Paradise. But we still have a few to go. So be sure to check in for the next few days still. We’ve got a few surprises left for yas. Including the Social Event of the Season. I promise, ya don’t wanna miss this one!!! ~~ And with that tease, I’m gonna get the heck outta this rain hat, and put on my Union Soldier hat. (I AM a Northerner livin’ in the South, don’tcha know?) I’ll fire my musket at your vote button for practice! AaaaaAA!! Scream at ya again soon! CRJake (Ö>"

  Hi Cooper!!
I’m a ‘new fid on the block’ too! I can get what it’s like to have to try to break the ice, and start making new friends here on the BirdChannel. I may live in the South, but I’m FROM the North, so I know ‘breaking ice!’ So I said to myself, I said “Self, wouldn’t it be easiest to start off talking to fids who are just as nervous as you are? And what’s more reasonable to talk about than being new?!” My good pal Buddy and I are in the middle of an adventure too..maybe you would like to check it out!!!! ~~ Come on over and visit when you can. I’m sure we can find something we have in common! Here’s a ‘Welcome to the BirdChannel’ vote for you. AaaaaAA!! Scream at ya again soon! CRJake (Õ>
