Cowboy joined us from a sanctuary in Texas in 2005. Cowboy is a self-appointed supervisor, and whether it is a new volunteer orientation or a toy party, he must be in charge. Cowboy, like many cockatoos in captivity, mutilates. He wears a vest to deter this behavior. It is a constant challenge to keep this extremely clever, sensitive, and stubborn cockatoo occupied and healthy.
Cowboy is a Moluccan Cockatoo; a larger cockatoo whose expenses for food, medicine and toys are approx $60/month or $720/year. Please click if you would like to contribute to his health and well being – thank you!
