Hi, I’m Buddy

PP number: PP873


Name: Buddy


Species: Orange-Winged Amazon Umbrella Cockatoo


Adoption fee: £400



Hi, I am Buddy the Umbrella Cockatoo! I am about 21 years old, fully feathered, and boy can I talk!  However, I am not tame at all and can have a tendency to bite.  I will need a very experienced Cockatoo home that will be able to bring me back to my lovable self. I have a large vocabulary and I will ask you for a tickle or if you want to dance!



I came back into the charity after being returned by my previous adopted home. I am approximately 21 years old.


Current Presentation:

I am a beautiful, fully feathered bird, and I’m in fine health!



I have a tendency to bite and am mistrustful of hands. This will need ongoing training from an experienced hand to help me learn to be better behaved.



I currently enjoy a diet of AS30 no sunflower mix, sprouted/soaked seeds, and fresh ‘chop’.



I love spending time out of my cage with the other birds in the safehouse. I also enjoy tearing up cardboard boxes, playing with foraging toys, and chewing wooden toys too!



Buddy is a beautiful Umbrella Cockatoo, fully feathered and has a good vocabulary. Unfortunately, he tends to bite, so anyone wishing to adopt him will need to either be very knowledgeable with cockatoos or have a lot of patience.

If you feel as though you could give Buddy time and a home to call his own then please apply below!
