Goffin Cockatoo

So I'm really excited as I'm picking up my new goffin cockatoo tomorrow. The last member of my flock I can't even voice how excited I am!


What do you guys think I should name him(male)?

Congrats! I must say I'm kind of jealous, I do want a big bird but I'm so at my limit. I am no good at naming birds as you can tell by my quaker, I can't help in that department am afraid
