I'd always wanted a bigger bird, and most likely a cockatoo. One of our local reputable breeders was having a retirement close-out sale at her store, and there was the SWEETEST little baby umbrella there! She stepped up on cue, and cuddled, and waited to go potty until I put her back in the cage. I snatched her up just as another customer started asking about her. Boy did she have me snowed! What a little hooligan! But we all love her anyway. She's just way too smart for her own good!. Awards

Hi! My name is Callie

I am an Umbrella Cockatoo from Minoa, NY.

Mouth, Brat, Dustbunny

11 years old   F

Umbrella Cockatoo

Anything I'm not supposed to have, anything Mom's eating or drinking.

Mom's lap, Grandpa's knee.

I don't like it when I'm not the center of attention, and I should be out of my cage ALL the time!

Mom has these cool little toes that I love to bite. It always gets a reaction out of her, so I'm guaranteed a lot of attention! She also plays catch with me. She made me these cool socks that she knotted up. They flip in the air really good! I can get a lot of height and distance on them!

I stomp around the bottom of my cage in a circle when I'm having a temper tantrum..

Scream really, really loud and your Mom won't be able to sleep in!.

I finally got my travel stand that I won from the flock giveaway. I was so happy when my mom brought in the big box and when she said that it was for ME! Boy I got so excited! I am afraid of it right now but I'm sure I'll get used to it soon. I never had anything like this before so whats a bird to do? Be scared I guess. hee hee! Theres a picture of it on my page and when I get braver and get on it then my mom will take a picture and put it on here. Well I better get going for now. I'll talk to you soon. Have a great day! Love, Rocky♥ (*><~)

Hiya Callie! My mom also has friends come over all the time and there's always one of her friends in particular she looks like one of Mommy's Barbie dolls who wears ankle bracelets all the time and they make wonderful chew toys! You would think she would learn!!! hahahaha silly friend! She's also ticklish so I love nibbling mommy's friends toes! I also got to finally see Mommy this weekend for a day, but she was home for a funeral so she was really sad so she spent more time with Baby than with Ben, Max or I...but she gets to come home for easter and hopefully we all get new toys!! - Cookie

Come visit me, Dread Pirate Roberts, Noel, Buttercup, Cookie RIP June 23, 2011 & Baby.

  It's my birthday!!
Mom says that I'm 2 years old, today!!! She says that I've been in the "terrible twos" since she brought me home though, whatever that means! I just know I got extra attention and the humans sang to me. It was very entertaining! I hope I have another birthday soon!

Come visit me, Freddy, Callie & Tiki.

  That is Scary
Callie, I can understand how you feel. My mommy took me to her gramdma's house and she is wrinkly and walks very strangely! She also talks very loud and it scared me so bad that I was on my mommy's should and I ran down her shirt and hide in what she calls a bra! I am only 5 months old so I guess I don't know much about this world but my mommy calmed me down and when we got home I got to cuddle with her! Come visit me sometime! I haven't had anyone visit my page in awhile. Everyone likes my brother Puffy cause he talks alot but hey I am only a baby and I can already say like 10 words! I am going to out talk him one day. You all will see!!!! Love ya Blueberry the beautiful Blue Quaker Parrot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Come visit me, Macey, Puffy & Blueberry.

  Hello Callie, you must be that white thing Freddy told me about. It sounds like you had quite a day this past week. I don't blame you for not wanting to be petted in a strange place. I let anyone hold me when I have to. But I am not so keen on being petted by strangers. When someone holds me I sit there and fluff up and wait patiently until they are done. Poirot

  My Scary Day -- by Callie
Yesterday, Mom decided to take me for a "fun" trip. She doesn't want me to think that the car is only good for going to the vet's office. So we all piled in to go see her great-uncle in something called "assisted living." I don't understand that. How can you be assisted in living? Oh well. Grandpa took the long way and we were in the car for hours! Well, Mom said it was only half an hour, but it felt really long! I got overheated 'cause grandpa thought I needed the heat on. Thank goodness Mom opened a window and yelled at him! Then we get to the place, and there's all these strange humans. They had this weird-colored hair -- silver maybe? -- and they were wrinkly! I've never seen such scary people! And they all had their own playgyms with them. Mom called them walkers and wheelchairs. I was pretty freaked out. Then one of the wrinkled ladies wanted to pet me and Mom was gonna let her!!! Well, I told them! I shrieked and took off across the carpet! I scared the lady and I'm glad!!! It was better inside her uncle's room -- nice and quiet so I could relax. Then we finally drove home and I got lots of treats and a nap.

Come visit me, Freddy, Callie & Tiki.

  Hi from Shadow!
Humans are so unreasonable, aren't they? We should get a special treat for getting them out of bed on time, or even early, but instead they act all irritated! It's hard to figure them out. As far as sleeping in the same room with them, I never would have thought of it. But I got sick once, and they were worried about me, and I actually got to sleep in the bed with them! Since then I'll have it no other way. I have my own perch next to my mom. I think she still worries about me some. Sometimes if it gets cold, I'll jump down onto her and snuggle in between her shoulder and face. She wakes up breathing my belly feathers.

Come visit me, Twig, Leaf & Shadowfax.

  Hi Callie, Doowee here. Thank you, Freddy and Tiki for visting my page. I am fun. Mom had a cockatiel, Bud, for 17 years before me. She wanted a big bird too. Now, shes bird crazy. Besides me, theres Sammy-Scarlett, Moses-CAG, and Angel-LS2. Angel and you have a lot in common, you like to hang in the same place. Me, I like to hang anywhere and on everything (curtain rods are cool, before I get caught). Angel likes to scream too, scares me, sounds like the shower/knife scene from the movie Psyco. And ALL day long, she tells us "Angel, pretty girl". Mom and Dad, thinks she sounds like cousin IT, from the Adams Family series, when she babbles, Is that a too thing, or just her?
Talk too you soon.

Come visit me, Sammy, Angel, Doowee & Moses.

  That is so cute! Thank you for visiting my bird, Kalipsa. She also likes to be the center of attention. You have a really cute bird. Those are some cute nicknames, too. Callie probably doesn't like it when you pay attention to Tiki and Freddy, but I am guessing she kind of respects Freddy since he is the oldest. You have three great birds! You can also visit my other little cockateil, Klips.

Come visit me, Klips, Kalipsa & Sunny.

  Hi Callie :) I love your nicknames. Mouth is my favorite, that's really funny. I have a baby Lesser SC cockatoo, but I haven't gotten a profile up for him yet. He's not much for letting me sleep in either. He sleeps in my room with me, and hops down onto the bed at 5am, and I wake up with a beak pressed against my nose. If that doesn't wake me up, walking on my face always does the trick.

Come visit me, Twig, Leaf & Shadowfax.

  Hi, Callie Welcome. So you stomp around also and do not let you mama sleep do I !!!! Us U2's don't know the meaning of sleeping in. LOL

Come visit me, Fergie, Max, Little Ham & Echo.

  Hi, Callie, i'm Louie and i think you're the cutest. And i just wanted you to know, stomping around the bottom of your cage is good way to vent frustration, i know, i do it too. Later Tater, Lou Bird.

Come visit me, Louie.

  Hi!! Your cockatoo is so cute! We just got a 20+ year old Moluccan Cockatoo that needed a home. She has learned she is a cockatoo and destroying everything in sight. They are real hams! Our Goffin cockatoo loves socks. He will sit there and put tiny little holes into them. I love how cockatoos skip and stomp around! Thanks for giving a shout out! Your Neighbors Amanda, Goose, Sprout, and Griff.

  Hi, Callie! It's me, Ozzy. I have a secret crush on Tikki, but don't tell her. I love her colors. My human said that you are very, very pretty and that she thought about getting one of you but then she fell in love with me (good for me!!). Not being the center of attention is one of my pet peeves, too, but my human is getting better because I'm training her really well. My human says that I'm the one being trained, though.
Time to go and eat my dinner.
Talk to you later, Callie.


Come visit me, Ozzy.
