I was wondering whether anyone might be able to explain to me why one name for me isn’t enough.
I passed through two homes after being hatched before coming to live with mom so I am aware that she didn’t have the opportunity to “choose” my name but giving me a whole bunch of nicknames is a bit overkill, don’t you think?
Most of the names she uses when she is mad at me which seems like to be more often than not.
Sometimes she calls me “Conehead”or “Mr. Magoo” as well. I don’t think it is nice to make fun of the way I look! My crest is short, I know but so what!!!! Okay and my eyes “do” bulge out from the side of my head making me look like that comic strip character with huge magnifying glasses but I still don’t like it.
I know how to retaliate! I will just SCREAM!!!!!
I think she should just call me, “Famous”. Haven’t you seen my debut on Nova — Inside Animal Minds – Bird Genius? If you live outside of the U.S. you’ll have to purchase the DVD but if you are in the U.S., you can probably view the episode online.
I was the Goffin’s who taught those other Goffin’s Cockatoos how to pick locks. I do that every day. I undo things and string things up. I recently became more adept at unlocking my own cage door so mom has to string a chain with multiple securing measures to make sure I don’t escape. She has the side food dish doors strung up too. They are too difficult to access from inside the cage but when I am out, I will unlock them and hope mom doesn’t notice when she puts me in the cage so I can get out and break Sydney out of her cage too!!!
