About Us
Mr. Magoo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Mr. Magoo
Age: Eighteen months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Umbrella Cockatoo
Home: Seminole, Florida, USA
   Mr. Magoo is an Umbrella Cockatoo who is very musically inclined, as you can see. He is now eighteen months old and has been my baby since he was a mere five month old little guy that walked across the breeders living room floor right up to my feet the day I went to see him, got right up on my hand, snuggled into my heart and has been there ever since. Mr. Magoo calls Seminole, Florida his home.

    Mr. Magoo is the most affectionate guy you ever want to meet. He loves having dinner with the family and goes to Dad's glass to get his ice cube when he finishes eating. He loves to show off and hang upside down from your hand and put up his crest and crow. He plays head banger with my thirteen year old daughter when she has her stereo on, by banging his beak up and down with his crest of head feathers up. All her friends adore him. His favorite game is to lay in wait on the couch until the Collie, Bonnie passes by and then go sailing off the couch to tackle her. They both love it. He is special when he knows we are sick or just not feeling good and cuddles under the covers with us. Peek a bird is the game then after he has had a nice nap.
