Please excuse the 3 megapixel quality and the backlight, but I wanted to show you guys one of the silliest birds at the rescue.
This is Seymour, a sulphur crested cockatoo that came to us under less-than-common circumstances. He was actually a show bird at Busch Gardens in Virginia! I don’t remember his whole backstory of how he ended up at our rescue, though (he’s been there since before I started volunteering).
So now he spends his days performing at his own will instead of responding to a trainer’s cue (which we are still trying to decode, with very little success…)
Here, you can hear him very clearly say “Hi, Seymour” and “WHOOO” when he starts shaking his head (:
Last Saturday, I got to spend my day off of work helping out the rescue at the Pet Expo at the Fairgrounds. I pretty much spend a majority of those five or so hours petting Coco, one of our Moluccan Cockatoos.
In case you couldn’t tell, he absolutely loves it.
