Q.T.

Breed:
Umbrella Cockatoo

Merlin

Q.T. was just that -- very cute and sweet!

She loved to be touched and cuddled. When she was really happy, she'd raise her crown and look like a Las Vegas showgirl!

Umbrellas are native to Indonesia, and in the Moluccan Islands of Batjan, Halmahera, Obi, Ternate and Tido.

 

Rocko

Breed:
Green-wing Macaw

 

Rocko

Rocko was an older Green-wing Macaw, perhaps 35 years or older, and worked the streets of Waikiki for many, many years. His first mate was Rainbow, then he became good buddies with Kakoa. Kakoa unfortunately passed away from disease, a great Green-wing also, but died too early. After Kakoa Rocko met Marley (below) and they bonded and became a great couple. But then Marley was stolen and Rocko couldn't handle the separation and the loss of another mate. He stopped eating and passed away in Bird Guy's arms. A very special bird!


Marley

Breed:
Blue & Gold Macaw

Merlin

Marley was ten years old when she was stolen. She was one of the most mellow birds in the world -- and there must be a million photos of Marley on her back with visitors. She and Rocko were perfect together. Click here to watch a KGMB-9 news report on Marley when she was stolen.
