Hello everyone! I just wanted to introduce myself. I have a 10-year-old re-homed Umbrella Cockatoo (Noodles). I am a big believer in applied behavior analysis/ABA and when I am not hanging out with my flying toddler, I teach special education lol (although she sometimes goes to school with me) smile If you had asked me years ago, I never would have guessed that my degree would lend itself so well to a totally different species!
Anyway, that's that!

Greetings and welcome. Your “flying toddler” comment made me chuckle. So true.

Welcome! 30 years here working with people with special needs, when I retired and went in to animal care adapting everything I had learned with behavior modification training with humans so easily switched over to animals and birds.

Thank you all for your "welcome"s ---It is nice to know I can talk about my bird here to people who really get it. I seriously LOVE her...but all of my students can tell you why you should never get a bird lol (even though they love her "too" ...okay okay...bad pun). I am so very glad I knew what I know going into cockatoo ownership! Flying toddler is totally accurate (with the occasional hormones of a 17 year old and a beak + the spatial reasoning of a 4-year-old haha). Thank you again for being so welcoming!

Be sure to use the search feature on the top of the page. You can search any topic by putting it into parenthesis and setting time frames to look. The site has been in existence now for close to 20 years so some information in the threads may be dated a bit but you will find newer information too. It's a great historical look at the care of cockatoos over the years and why things were done a certain way and the how and why things have evolved. As new research has been conducted diet, behavioral training, veterinary practice have all grown.

Welcome!
