Buddy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Buddy
Age: Six years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Umbrella Cockatoo
Home: Rockford, Michigan, USA
   This is Buddy, my Umbrella Cockatoo. I am Buddy's third home, and I have only had him since October of 2002. He's a demanding bird, has trained me well, and it is all worth it! He's not much of a talker, I have been working with him though, and so far he is working on saying "Hello" and "Hi". He loves to whistle though, and has learned the laughs of the house, so if someone laughs he usually laughs with them. He is easily excitable, has tons of energy. It's common for him to bob up and down, dance back and forth, flap his wings, and put his crest up and head bang. He likes hanging upside down on his play gym, enjoys one to two soaking showers a week, and will do darn near anything for his favorite treat, an almond. Oh, and his favorite thing to do, destroy anything he can get his beak on, nothing is safe in the house. When he's not in perpetual motion, he likes to cuddle, and be pet all over. The name Buddy fits him very well.
