Facts about Harley

  • Breed: Cockatoo
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: Harley
Hi! Hi! Hi! My name is Harley, pleased to meet you! Don't let the name fool you, I am a lovely 16 year old female Umbrella Cockatoo. My foster daddy says that I am a real sweetie. I am an equal opportunity snuggler, I like both men and women!

I am a real cuddly, hands on type snuggler and I have to admit I really crave attention..a lot of it. Sometimes, when I feel like I'm not getting all the attention I feel I deserve, I will scream to let you know that I think you are neglecting me. This makes me quite unsuitable for apartment or condo living, so please, if you are interested in adopting me, live in a single family family home.

I get along well with my foster family's furry friends (both dogs and cats) but please do not leave me together with your other pets, unsupervised, no matter how well we seem to get along. Bedtime is not a problem for me. I will quiet down and go to sleep right away when it's dark and I am covered and will sleep through the night.

I am a pellet diet supplemented with "chop". My foster dad has been trying to get me to eat these things called "nuts" but so far I havent been too thrilled with them. If you would like to cut off a piece of the fresh fruit you are eating and give me a taste, I bet I would like it!

My favorite toy is one that I can destroy. I can't have too many of those! Hey! What can I say? I have a big beak and you know what they say...A busy beak is a happy beak. (or something like that). My favorite game is Peek A Boo! I love to get under the covers and stick my head out and hear you say Peek A Boo! I also like it when my foster daddy holds me on his arm, holds my feet, and flips me upside down very fast. If you come to meet me, I'll ask him to show you how he does this.

I am really a pretty good natured bird and should fit well into my new forever home, but first I have to find it! Would you be interested in giving a beautiful Umbrella cockatoo a home for good? How about coming to meet me and let's see if you and I are meant to be together! In the meantime, would you like to buy me a gift from my Amazon wish list? Here is the link, I would really appreciate it.

Hope to meet you soon!
Cuddles and Snuggles, Harley

About Florida Parrot Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Florida Parrot Rescue is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of companion parrots. We strive to educate parrot owners on proper handling and care of parrots. Should someone be unable to keep their bird(s) for ANY reason, we want them to know there is a place to turn, and that they are not alone. It is our goal to provide a safe haven for birds that cannot stay with their owners or birds in need, and then to find those birds permanent forever homes with loving and responsible families.

Our rescues are located in homes through out the state. We will work with the fosters and potential adopters to set up dates and times.
