CockatoosRSS

Cockatoos share many features with other parrots like the characteristic curved beak shape and a zygodactyl foot, but differ with the often spectacular movable headcrest, the presence of a gall bladder and some other anatomical details.

Angel 2
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

Hi! My name is Angel. Since there was already another Angel at the Refuge before I arrived, I am commonly referred to as Angel 2. I arrived at the Refuge in May of 2009. People tell me I'm a big, handsome boy cockatoo and I tend to agree with them! I l ...

Baby 1
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

Hi! I'm Baby 1. Thanks for stopping by. I'm sure you can tell by looking at my picture that I'm a pretty handsome guy. I don't always preen myself properly, and as such, my feathers take on a bit of a shredded look. I think this makes me look quite distin ...

Baby 2
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

Hi there! I'm Baby 2. I have quite a personality and am gorgeous to boot! I am a bit choosy when it comes to the people that I like, but if you're one of those people, I'll make sure you know it! I love to cuddle and also show off how beautiful I am by ...

Caesar
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

Hello there! I'm Caesar - thanks for stopping by my profile. I came to live at the Refuge because my dad worked long hours and didn't feel as though I was getting enough attention. Once I settled in at the Refuge and got into the swing of things, I mad ...

Coconut
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

Hi, I'm Coconut! I was surrendered to the CARE rescue in Wisconsin and came to the Refuge from there. I am very choosy when it comes to the people I like. I do like to cuddle in towels, so this is a good way to spend time with me and get to know me. I get ...

Daisy
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

Well, hello there! My name is Daisy and I'm an adorable little diva. I came to the Refuge all the way from Michigan and traveled on Rich's shoulder the whole way home. It took me all of about 2 minutes to win Rich over - it must be my charm. Since bein ...

Honey
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

Hi, My name is Honey! Thanks for visiting my page. I'm pretty quiet, although being a cockatoo, I certainly have the ability to be loud. The Refuge is still learning about me and will update my profile with more details after they get to know me a bit ...

Johnnie
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

Hi, my name is Johnnie and I am a male Greater Sulphur Crested Cockatoo. I am a big boy and when I first came to the Refuge, I was a pretty miserable guy. I was very overweight, grumpy, sick and a big feather picker. One of my very favorite people, a v ...

Katie
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

Hi! My name is Katie. Contrary to what my name suggests, I am actually a male Umbrella cockatoo. I was a very good boy in my previous home, but my Dad's work caused him to travel extensively and he knew that I wasn't getting the time and attention that ...

Lemon
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

Hi, my name is Lemon! Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my page. I’ve been called both Lemon and Hercules, but since I call myself Lemon (often times saying “I love you Lemon”), everyone calls me Lemon (I think that’s a nicer name anyway - very ref ...

Well, hello there! My name is Leo and I'm a spunky boy who loves a home-cooked [bird] meal. I’m currently looking for an experienced bird handler to provide me with love, patience and respect (I have shown a preference for women). I was hurt in my past ...

Martha
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

Hi! I'm Martha. Although I was given a girl's name, I'm actually a boy. Sometimes people call me Marty. I'm a gorgeous Citron Crested cockatoo. While I'm an awesome bird, I do have one quirk. And it's a pretty big one: I absolutely, positively cannot l ...

Maxine

Hi! My name is Maxine and I'm a pretty girl who's already had a couple of homes and I'm looking for my forever home. I have a best bird friend here at the Refuge. Her name is Rosie and she's a Moluccan Cockatoo. We can play together for hours and not g ...

Mickey
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

Hi, I'm Mickey! I choose the people I like carefully, but if you're one of those people, I'll be your best friend. I do require someone with cockatoo experience who can read my body language. I don't like when people wear baseball hats. Baseball hats s ...

Molly 1
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

Hi there, I'm Molly! Contrary to what my name suggests, I'm actually a male. I am a wild-caught cockatoo who has already been in two different homes. Being a wild-caught bird, it took me a while to learn to live with humans. However, once I get to know an ...

Molly 2
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

Hi, my name is Molly 2! My real name is just plain Molly, but because there are two Moluccans, both with the name Molly, we are differentiated by the numbers 1 and 2. People don’t call me Molly 2 while playing with me… just Molly works for me. I am a b ...

Papua
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

Hi, my name is Papua! That's not a name you hear every day, is it? Like my name, I am a pretty unique bird. I am a fully feathered medium Sulphur-Crested cockatoo and am absolutely gorgeous (if I do say so myself). I have definite likes and dislikes wh ...

Peachie
Star00Star00Star00Star00Star00

Hi, my name is Peachie! Prior to coming to live at the Refuge, I lived my whole life with one family. Sadly, my mom became allergic to me and the allergies led to asthma. My mom spent lots of money on allergy medication in hopes of keeping me around, b ...
