Hello Cocky

When my mum went to visit her Grandma over Easter, she took me along and introduced me to a very weird creature who has been in her family for a very long time.




This is Cocky an Australian Cockatoo. He is 52 human years old and is really funny. He talks just like a human so I couldn't understand a word he was saying but I think he was in a bad mood. He kept screeching and throwing his head up and down alot so I didn't stay by his cage for long.

Anyway I hope all of you had a lovely weekend. Mine was busy but yet rather relaxing as always. I'll stop by all your blogs soon.

Cockatoos live for a long time dont they Giz. He sounds like a great member of your family.
We love it when cockies fly over head. They screech so loudly it cracks us all up. Funny things!

Hi Gizmo,

When I first saw your pictures I thought I was seeing some kinda funky chicken! BOL

My mom has birds too. She keeps them in a room in our house. Me and Banjo are not allowed to go in there.

I'm glad you had a good weekend. And thanks for coming by my blog.

Wags & wiggles,
Bijou

Gizmo,

52 years old! Wow! That's older than my mom and I thought she was old! Birds like that have to be in human's wills cause they live so long. That's really cool!

Wow.. so what did Cocky say to you? Hopefully the next time you meet him, he'll be more friendly :)

Oh, hello Mr. Cocky.
You're 52 years old that means you're 364 years old in doggy years, I respect you, Australian senior citizen!
Glad you have a relaxed weekend, so do I.
