Brookfield Zoo
Sadly, today we mourn the loss of one of the leading spokesbirds for cockatoos and all parrots, Cookie, the 83-year-old Major Mitchell's Cockatoo of the Brookfield Zoo (Chicago, IL).

Chicago Zoological Society staff are mourning the loss of one of Brookfield Zoo’s most beloved and well-known animals: Cookie, an 83-year-old Major Mitchell’s cockatoo. Cookie, who was certified by Guinness World Records as the oldest living parrot in 2014, died on August 27. He was the oldest resident at the zoo and the only remaining member of the original animal collection, which dates back to 1934, when the zoo first opened. Cookie lived well beyond the life expectancy for his species. He arrived at Brookfield Zoo at the age of 1 from Taronga Zoo in Australia. Over the years, Cookie’s popularity grew and he touched many people’s lives. He received many cards, letters, toys, and pictures from admirers around the world. Among his admirers is Dr. Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji, a holy man and healer from Mysore, India, who founded a parrot sanctuary there. When he heard about Cookie, His Holiness and his entourage made a pilgrimage to Brookfield. The Society has set up a memorial fund at CZS.org/Cookie for those who would like to make a donation in memory of Cookie. Contributions will go directly to the Society’s Center for the Science of Animal Care and Welfare for the care, feeding, and well-being of the entire bird collection, as well as all of the animals that call Brookfield Zoo their home. Cookie will be sorely missed by staff and visitors alike.

Miss Vicki's Parrot Village, Inc
It's funny to see some posts generate renewed interest months or even years after we first posted them. This one has been shared many times today. Maybe we all just need love. :-)

I had the nail clippers and towel in my hand. She tries to sweet talk her way out of this every single time!

More volunteer work this weekend by some of the Village supporters for the DeKalb birds.
The Village also donated a bunch of cages, which resulted in better housing for many of the ~300 DeKalb birds.

Miss Vicki's Parrot Village, IncSeymour is doing great. He has a 'girlfriend' named Opey. Opey has been boarding here for several years, and they are the best of friends. I got too close to him the other day, and he bit me on the shoulder! Maybe it was because he was trying to protect me from the scary ladder I was carrying...yep, he was just being a gentleman ;-)1   ·  2 weeks ago

I rarely beg for help, but that is only because I save my begging for when I REALLY need it! Now is one of those times. I forgot to replace my veggie cutters who left for college last week...yes, that was a big 'Whoops!'

Normally, this 'Whoops!' would be easily managed, but Whole Foods in Buckhead donates their produce each week, but this week they, and our delivery person (Genevieve Schmidt), went above and beyond with TWO large deliveries. I have spent hours and hours washing and cutting over the last two days and barely made a dent. This produce is going to spoil before I can finish.

If you are anywhere near here and want to take a box home to wash, cut, and bag, I will be forever grateful. I would offer to have you do it here, but I don't have a kitchen, so I have been doing it wherever I can find space. I will keep my phone handy, so text me at 770-314-9980 if you are able to help.

Many thanks! ... See MoreSee Less
