Bart and Maggie came into Dupage Animal Control with their parents when they were just hatched. They are very precious little guys and their parents took nice care of them. We have had them for most of their life so far. They are hand tamed as well. The...
Hi, my name is Molly 2! My real name is just plain Molly, but because there are 2 Moluccans in the garage, both with the name Molly, we are differentiated by the numbers one and 2. People don?t call me Molly two while playing with me? just Molly works for me. I am a big, happy boy. Yes, I said ?boy?! Obviously, my previous owner didn?t realize I was a boy, which is why the name Molly was chosen...
Meet Lola! She's our newest Umbrella cockatoo. She's still a baby - only about 2yrs old. We will be adding more info as well as photos of Lola soon
Hi, my name is Tony! I'm a Lesser Sulphur-crested cockatoo. I'm a bit choosy when it comes to who I like, but I'm really precious once I get to know you. I like to cuddle up underneath your chin while you pet me. I adore under wing rubs and clack my beak while receiving them. I'm really great at chewing up pieces of wood and I'm the only bird at the Refuge who had his very own toy box at the bo...
Hi! My name is Rocky and I'm a big Moluccan cockatoo. I've had a bit of a rough life. I had a mom who loved me very much, but she passed away. Her sister tried to care for me, but I got overly excited and bit her and then she put me into a small room and never let me out of my cage. I don't like to dwell on this time in my life though, so let's focus on my current life.
Hi there! I'm Baby 2. I have quite a personality and am gorgeous to boot! I am a bit choosy when it comes to the people that I like, but if you're 1 of those people, I'll make sure you know it! I love to cuddle and also show off how exquisite I am by flapping my wings when held up high in the air. I am well known around the Refuge for sitting on the shoulders of my favorite people and laying my...
Kirby is a little Hahn's macaw who was recently returned to the Refuge due to his owner's busy schedule. His owner is 1 of our volunteers, so Kirby will still get to see his buddy weekly.
Hi! My name is Stormy. I'm a Double-Yellow Headed Amazon. I was neglected for a couple of years before finding my way to the Refuge. Life has been much better since I came to live here. Due to my previous experiences, I am sometimes prone to lunging if you put your fingers too near to my cage. I hope you'll respect me enough to understand this. I do, however, behave very well when people clean ...
Hi, My name is Honey! Thanks for visiting my page. I'm a Medium Sulphur-Crested cockatoo boy. I'm pretty quiet, although being a cockatoo, I certainly have the ability to be loud. The Refuge is still learning about me and will update my profile with more info after they get to know me a bit better.
Hi! My name is Katie. Contrary to what my name suggests, I am actually a male Umbrella cockatoo. I was a very great boy in my previous home, but my Dad's work caused him to travel extensively and he knew that I wasn't getting the time and attention that I deserved. He made the difficult decision to bring me to live at the Refuge. I love to play with boxes and just about any type of toy you give...
Hi - I'm Coconut! I was surrendered to the CARE rescue in Wisconsin and came to the Refuge from there. I am very choosy when it comes to the people I like. I do like to cuddle in towels, so this is a nice way to spend time with me and get to know me. I get excited easily, so you should be very great at reading cockatoo body language if you want to spend time with me.
Well, hello there! My name is Daisy and I'm an precious little diva. I came to the Refuge all the way from Michigan and traveled on Rich's shoulder the whole way home. It took me all of about two minutes to win Rich over - it must be my charm.
Hi! My name is Angel. Since there was already another Angel at the Refuge before I arrived, I am commonly referred to as Angel 2. I arrived at the Refuge in May of 2009. People tell me I'm a big, attractive boy cockatoo and I tend to agree with them! I love to greet you with my 'Hiii', which is not your typical 'Hi'. I have a great little twist on how I say 'Hiii' to people - trust me, you have...
Hi! I'm Gittle. Thanks for stopping by to look at my profile page. As you can see from my profile picture, I am a exquisite Yellow-naped amazon. I found my way to the Refuge after my mom passed away. During the time I've spent here, I've discovered that I LOVE men. Women are really not my thing, but maybe I just haven't met the right 1 yet? If you're looking for a new green buddy, please consid...
Hi there! I'm Zachary, a Goffin's cockatoo. People call me Zach for short. I'm actually a female, even though my name is more of a male's name. I'm a sweetheart and I love perching on people's heads. You may want to check your hair before you leave the house.... you never know what kind of surprise I may have left in there! Over the years, I've been a bit rough on my feathers and many of them w...
Hi, My name is Shady. Thanks for stopping by to check out my profile! I'm a wonderful Goffin's cockatoo who came to the Refuge with Gittle (Yellow-naped amazon) after our mom passed away. We're both waiting patiently for new homes (although we do not need to be adopted together). I love women, but it takes me a little while to warm up to men. I also really like towels. I was pretty plucked when...
Hi, I'm Sammy! I'm a male (they think!) Umbrella cockatoo. I am 1 fully feathered attractive guy! I came to the Refuge after my previous guardian released me to Niles Animal Hospital. I was adopted once but returned 2yrs later when my family divorced. Needless to say, I'm looking for a stable and forever home. I tend to really like blonde women and if you happen to be a favorite of mine, you'll...
Well, hello there! My name is Leo and I'm a Goffin's cockatoo. I was born in April of 2000, which means I'm almost 11 yrs old. I'm a spunky boy who loves a home-cooked [bird] meal. I enjoy veggies too, and showers are taken with relish. My favorite toys are the soft wood kind.
Hi, my name is Rusty and I'm a Cherry-headed conure. I'm a happy boy! I've been told I have a very infectious laugh that makes you laugh right along with me. It's fun! I came to the Refuge along with my 2 African Grey parrot friends, Ziggy and Vito, during 2009 because one of our previous family members developed an allergy to us. Not to brag, but I've stolen the hearts of various volunteers al...
Hi, I'm Rosie, a Moluccan cockatoo. Like my name suggests, I am a female. I've proven it over the years by occasionally laying an egg. I tend to be a bit shy around humans, but I really like other birds. I have a special friend at the Refuge. Her name is Maxine and she's a Goffin's cockatoo. You should go check out her profile after you read mine. I adore spray bottle baths and scream with deli...
