I have been researching cockatoos and it seems that they need a lot of attention. I spent hours and Houmas House and paid attention to what was transpiring with the bird. No one other than my friend and I stopped by the cage to acknowledge the bird while I was there. First, the cage is not on the walking path and one must walk across grass to visit the bird. The cage is small. I asked the maintenance staff if the bird is ever let out of the cage and they said no, that the cage is brought in at night but the bird is not let out. I am attaching some links regarding cockatoos in sanctuaries. It seems as though they need more than this cockatoo is receiving. I would feel much better if Houmas House did some research regarding cockatoos and began provided a better life for this beautiful wonderful bird who is locked in a small cage with very little attention from anyone all day. If the attached links are opened and read then one will lea rn more about cockatoos and their culture.
 
Thanks so much for your help!
