Snow

Snow is a Sulphur-crested Cockatoo and is a complete character. Her previous owner was forced to give her up through difficult circumstances, and she ended up at Bird Rescue. But Cockatoos, like many parrots, can live up to 80 or 100 years, so she needed a long-term home.

Snow is 21 years old, and loves attention, snacks and games. Every day she enjoys going out into the garden and resting in the trees, calling out “Hello Snow!” to everyone who passes. She also can’t resist a good snuggle and will climb off her perch and follow you around until she gets a kiss, or a snack. She adores spaghetti, cracking open peanuts, and even a nice stick of wood to tear apart.

The Sanctuary is an animal refuge run by Shawn Bishop and Michael Dixon in Matakana, New Zealand. We provide a safe haven for abused and neglected animals, and care for injured or orphaned native birds. A charitable trust has been established for this purpose.
