Meet Lucy…the Cockatoo

She’s a riot and beautiful too. She loves Brittany for some reason…just as most animals tend to do.

A bit inquisitive…I don’t think she’s seen a camera come so close before~

Getting better acquainted with the idea of striking a pose~

Lucy dancing with Brittany…she actually mimics every move Brittany makes…this was during a “bouncing” move. I love how you can see her pretty yellow feathers peeking out from underneath her as she dances~

Just a sweet shot of her from the front…I think she’d had enough by this point (come back tomorrow to see this shot with one of my FREE textures applied to it)~

Cockatoos have such BIG personalities! Learn more about them here.

  8. She does talk some…mostly “hello” dragged out. She is my in laws bird and she is a character! When she gets loud she is annoying as all heck…like if you’re trying to watch a movie!


  9. […] my sample. It’s from one of the photos of Lucy in my post yesterday. The differences are I converted it to black and white and added the braided texture as a […]
