Passed: May 18, 2011
It is with a very sad and heavy heart that Karen and I must inform all of you of Coco's passing on 5/18/2011. Please say a prayer as Coco now flies free and onto the Rainbow Bridge, she will surely be missed.
Hi there! My name was Coco (short for Coconut). I was a female Umbrella cockatoo from Florida. My parents adopted me from Parrot Jungle when I was a baby and brought me to Illinois. I lived with them until my favorite family member went away to college; I became lonely and so they decided that I needed a new home.
I talked a little bit and called myself "chicken." I also responded to the name "noodle" and could sing a little bit of "It's a Small World After All." My favorite thing to do was to snuggle. I loved a good head rub and a pet under my wings. I didn't always get along with other birds, and I did scream, but if you took me home, I would have loved to spend time cuddling with you.
