The zoo is getting some veggies later today so we'll see how he likes those. It seems he was alowed to drink from a mug, and he tried to drink my coffee. Wasn't happy when I said 'no' and moved the mug.

So far, so good.

They haven't. The previous owner's son has been fighiting cancer, and naturaly their priorities shifted. He's been plucking a bit, but this morning he came out of his cage by himself, and he was eating and drinking last night. So the first 12 hours are good.

But my god, that scream. wow.
Unfortunately Jonesy the goffin I had a few years back,did exactly that. he screamed from sun-up to sundown and then for no known reason turned his tastes towards flesh...MY flesh! After a year or so I re-homed him to a family down the road who still have him and love him. you have to be a certain "type' of person to be a cockatoo person..obviously I am NOT one of those!

I have not heard Goffin's- probably seen them a couple of times in zoos but don't recollect their calls. But have seen and heard Suns on many occasions. I don't know how people can put up with their horrendous calls -possibly the beautiful plumage serves as a compensation but still! No offence! Just my honest thoughts.

Out of three, the Quaker and the Grey make the most noise. Bobbi, is the loudest, but so far it hasn't been an all day thing. He seems to screech when he want's something or is mad. Granted he's only been here a few weeks, but youtube does not do their screams justice.
