Ollie - Umbrella Cockatoo - DK79
Hello, my name is Ollie although my safehouse mum calls me Olivander if I am not behaving. I am an Umbrella Cockatoo only 19 years young. I came to my Safehouse in the beginning of the lockdown and I am doing great. I love playing with all my toys and getting crazy at the tree that they have build for me. I was a bit shy in the beginning but after few days I decided that my Safehouse Mum is nice and that I can trust her.
I love taking shower, my favourite is when it is sunny and then I can get fully soaked. I like to go into shower room as well but that took a bit of time to get used to the bathroom.
I do not like my Safehouse dad, I believe that mum is only mine and will show him how big I can get with my amazing crest and spread wings. I will take any chance to chase him on the floor and nip his feet.
I say few words – will greet you with “halo”! and will argue with you when excited. If I begin to like you, I might even tell you ”Hello lovely” or that ”I love you”. I know a few tricks and I will step up, I can do a wave with my left foot, turn around on the perch and I am learning to spread my wings. I am very quick learner so If that is something you want to do; we will have a lot of fun together. I will do a lot for sunflower seeds and pine nuts, but dried banana and papaya are my favourite. I do not like nuts though.
I am a great bird and my Safehouse Mum would love to keep me, but she is changing jobs and moving so cannot take me with her. It is the right time for me to find my forever person.
