We will soon begin traveling with our 2 yr old umbrella ****-a-too and would like to hear from oters that travel with birds. We realize that he will need his health papers. Is there anything else we need to be aware of. What type of cage is best?

An Umbrella is a pretty big bird that requires a pretty large cage.

We have traveled with as many as 3 small parrots, each in it's own cage. Currently we have only the Grey and he has a small travel cage. We removed on of our recliners and use a wod TV stand to set his cage on and to stor his fod, cover and some extra toys.

As always you need to keep tham out of direct sun light and drafts. You have to be careful of fumes and vapors in a closed up space like an RV. be especially mindful of teflon pans getting to hot on the stove. Normal cooking in them is fine. I would not get one hot enough to fry though. Teflon when heated too much will give off a fume that is deadly to a bird.

The problem that I can see with a cockatoo is that they do tend to be screamers and they are pretty loud. If yours like to scream, it could be a bit disturbing to your fellow campers.

We have been camping with parrots now for almost 20 years.

We have a african grey and would not leave home without him or her. When we are traveling we put her on the table and bungee cord her down so the cage willnot move. We also purchased a folding table from camping world that the cage fits on when we are stopped. Just don't let the parrot out of the cage while you are going or you will be replacing some furniture.
