Shadow

Everyone please meet Shadow.
Unfortunately right now she is not my bird but I'm really hoping she can stay and permanently join our family.

Shadow is a 25 year old female moluccan cockatoo.

She was willed to my vet last year and our bond was instant. I will go into see Shadow as often as I can. She's learned the sound of my car and calls for me.

Since my vet isn't in the clinic often during the holidays she got to come here and be apart of my family over the holidays. Lol I think Dr. T was thinking I'd want to give her back due to the noise. Guess what she hardly screams with me here.

Since coming home she has found her love for warm misting showers on the sink. Her pink colours have come out so much!

She's also has a huge vocabulary, and will mix words together.
Today's special was "hello, coffees over" when my Mom came in. my friend and I where killing ourselves laughing.
Other words include
Hello
Goodbye
Shadow
Pretty bird
Pretty boy
Bad bird
Good bird
Come here
Shut up (i did not teach her this one)
Please
Silly
Barks
Meows
Howls

Among other things. She whistles, sings songs. Rocks out.

She gives hugs or love when asked. Waves hi or bye.

I have taught her "use your words" instead of screaming. Which she will now.

Tell her to go to bed and she climbs into her cage.

Yells at you to shut up if you get too loud at night when she's covered. Which I find very very funny.

She's a avid book eater. Lol She's currently shredding "how to play chess" and a phone book. She's well read. Lol

99% of the time she's out and about with the family.

Love Shadow bird so much!!

Re: Shadow

Shadow is amazingly beautiful and photogenic! Quite a vocabulary for a too!! I've not yet have one willing to speak more than about 5 words!

Hopefully she will become a permanent family member.
