Tango, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tango
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Goffin Cockatoo
Home: Fort Worth, Texas, USA
   Meet Tango, a Goffin Cockatoo. Goffins are often referred to as Goofies, as they are big clowns who will do anything for attention from somersaults to hanging upside down, flapping wildly and squawking. When excited, their topknot points up, otherwise they have a smooth headed appearance. Their big dark eyes and beak always give the appearance of a perpetual grin. Goffins are also known as 'Velcro birds' who love to be cuddled and loved on. Tango raises his wings for that special 'underarm' scritch everyday, bows his head for head scritches and will lay on his back in your lap as long as you provide the attention. He's a pretty good talker but sounds remarkably like Donald Duck. Tango lives in Fort Worth, TX with eight other birds and his two human slaves. (This photo is 'digitally enhanced' by me, one of his human slaves, both birds are Tango.)
