Bare-Eyed CockatoosBare-Eyed Cockatoos
The bare-eyed cockatoo is a slightly smaller member of the cockatoo family of parrots, and it is one that is somewhat easier to keep as a pet than its larger cousins. The ring of blue around the eyes gives these birds a slightly sleepy look, but these birds are actually quite social and active, much preferring to be out of the cage and interacting with their owners.
The bare-eyed cockatoo may not be the most colorful parrot in the world, but it more than makes up for it in personality. Sweet, playful, and intelligent, bare-eyed cockatoos are becoming more and more popular as pets. While cockatoos, in general, are among the more difficult birds to keep, due to a reputation as a “velcro bird” (sticking to their owners), if you have the time and determination to provide your bird with plenty of attention, you will have a wonderful companion.
