Sugar is a 20 year old male Umbrella cockatoo who came to our sanctuary after working in the educational program of an AZA accredited institution. Sugar came to us as a feather plucker, and although he has continued this behavior, he plucks to a much lesser extent which has allowed his feather condition to improve dramatically. Sugar is extremely intelligent and very high energy! He makes up his own games, one of which is similar to bowling. Sugar also loves to put random containers over his head and he uses full rolls of toilet paper to decorate (wrap) his cage! His girlfriend's name is Bear Bear.

Favorite treats: dried green grapes, almonds in shell and if he could have them all the time. . . peanuts.

Favorite toy/activity: anything he can throw and chase; foraging for treats.
