To call Sydney a ham is an understatement. This cockatoo, like many others, loves to get attention. She’s not very good at mimicking human voices, but she loves to mimic other sounds like whistles, mumbles and screams. She also flares up her crest (the yellow feathers on the top of her head), dances, and whips her head back and forth. She also acts like her job is to keep her trainers on their toes. She’ll try to figure out every shortcut she can during her training sessions. She’s a clever girl!
