A co-worker could not keep him anymore and I took him in while they re-modeled their kitchen. That was 2 years ago and he is now MY baby..

Hi! My name is Maui

I am a Moluccan Cockatoo from Escondido, CA.

Mau-Mau

18 years old   M

Moluccan Cockatoo

Nutter Butters, banana, yams

On the manzanita tree perch and on the arm of the chair while mom feeds him yams or bananas

Does not like anyone to come near mom.

She loves me even though I have the full Moluccan attitude some of the time.

Maui just got a new, huge cage. Within the first month, he figured out how to unlock the cage and get out (it's now padlocked), he learned how to open all the food doors. When the food doors were locked, he learned how to take out the nuts and bolts. He is slowly trying to dismantle the whole cage piece by piece!.

There is no toy that I can't destroy in 5 minutes because I am an absolutely HUGE cockatoo. Our avian vet even said that Maui is one of the biggest cockatoos he'd ever seen..

  This is Rocky here and I am on a mission to get my good friend Lady Bird BOTW. She is a very sweet girl that has been through alot in her life and she really deserves to be BOTW. I would like to ask you if you could stop by and give her a vote everyday this week and show her how many good friends that she has out here. She also has a new sister named Dutchess and her mommy rescues abused birds and she is looking for any advise that you might have on helping her with Dutchess. Dutchess is a macaw and she was abused very badly and she is a biter. So if you could help her out with Dutchess she would really appreciate it. Thanks and PLEASE help Lady Bird out this week, she really deserves this award.... Thank you! Now to find Lady Bird, just go to the top of your page and hit the profile button, then type in Lady Bird where it says Search Name. She is the only cockatoo there the rest are macaws. Thanks again and I hope that you have a great day and I am also leaving you a vote to. Love, Rocky♥ R(*><~)R

  HEY MAUI!!
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♥ (*><~)

  HEY MAUI!!
How have you been? I haven't heard from you in along time. How was your Halloween? I got my first pumpkin and I was afraid of it. My mom is gonna make me some bread with it and I can't wait to see how this turns out because she hates baking.. She said that she'll do it for me... I am finally able to go outside now, it cooled down enough. I love sitting out here and barking at everyone that walks by. They just laugh at me. Well, I better get going. You have a great day and I hope to hear from you soon. Love, your friend, Rocky♥ xoxoxo

  Hi from Maui
My name's Maui too but I'm a little Hahns. I have the same nickname though, Mau Mau is what my mom calls me!! Hey, do you think you could teach me to take my cage apart too? That sounds like a neat trick! Bet your mom is very proud of you! Hope you come visit me too.

Come visit me, Maui, Kona, Gizmo & Gabby.

  Hi Maui
I am so happy that you have found a forever home. You are absolutely beautiful, who can resist that face!!! I also have a step sister named Charolette, she is a Goffin cockatoo and she keeps me on my toes. Thanks for visiting me.

  Mau Mau! Wow, all I could say when I first saw you was "Awwwwwe!" You are spectacular!!!!! I rehabbed a huge Umbrella this summer . . . didn't know they could get so big either! You are a real show-stopper! If "the" McCartney is Paul McCartney of the Beatles, then the answer to your question is YES. The woman I got him from is an avid Beatle-Maniac! Each of her birds had names of the band members, crew members, etc. Thank you for visiting, and Bailey says Hello. Liz

Come visit me, Crackers, Gretta, Fran, Bailey & Hannibal.

It is so great to see a cockatoo so happy and healthy! Warms my heart and soul. So glad Maui is with you and appears to have a forever home now. Welcome!

Come visit me, Jamie, Twinkie - Pastel-Faced Lutino, Skittles, Carley & Jessie.
