Facts about Mr Tucker

  • Breed: Cockatoo
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Unknown
  • Sex: Male
MR TUCKER is a 13 year old male umbrella cockatoo. Yes, he is also a healthy, enthusiastic and sometimes loud cockatoo. After spending the day in the aviary with his best friend Pippin, also a 13 year old male cockatoo who is adoptable through Phoenix Landing, Mr Tucker comes inside and bangs bowls and pans around his cage to make his own ''music'', throws toy parts everywhere, hides under the paper and plays peek-a-boo, and generally has a great time while winding down his busy day.
But, Mr Tucker is also very well socialized and enjoys the company of the whole family. He has many endearing things to say, especially when it is sleep time and he wants you to know how much he appreciates the good life.
Cockatoos are SUPER smart, and males are especially good at mechanical things, like opening cages and detroying toys. It’s important to keep them busy, busy, busy to avoid problem behaviors that result from being bored.
Mr Tucker is a fairly independent Cockatoo and would do well with a family willing to
keep him busy, but ideally, we would like to send him to a home where he could stay with his best friend Pippin.

About Our Rescue Group...

The Phoenix Landing Foundation (PL) is a non-profit all-volunteer organization. PL promotes and protects the welfare of parrots, especially those with an extensive lifespan. We provide for parrots of all types in need, and act as advocates for those without protection. Visit our website at for more information. We also sponsor great educational seminars! All are welcome (please do not bring your birds or other pets). Most of PL's classes are free, although of course we always welcome donations.

Come Meet Our Pets...

.Most of our birds are being fostered in private homes in the MD, VA, NC, SC, and DC area. Sometimes, we have foster families bring their birds to these events for prospective adopters to meet them.

Our Adoption Process...

We require:
- An Adoption Application
