Meet a Car Surfing Cockatoo Who Thinks He’s “Superbird”

A post shared by KOKOMAUIHAWAII (@kokomauihawaii)Since he was a young child, Gera has always dreamed of having a pet bird to take on adventures. He didn’t just want a bird that sat in a cage and couldn’t experience life. He wanted a bird to interact with him and “act like a Superman!”“So, in 2012, I moved to Maui, Hawaii.

I owned a business at the time, so I worked from home. I started going to pet shops and playing with birds. And that’s when I said, ‘You know what? I’m ready to have a bird,’” Gera recalls.He walked into a pet store one day and told the owner he wanted a cockatoo because they’re “the funniest birds.” However, she had some bad news; there weren’t any cockatoos in Hawaii.

She told him “good luck,” and he went on his way, disappointed that he couldn’t adopt a cockatoo that day.However, she called him back two weeks later with much better news. She said: “I found one in the whole state of Hawaii. It’s a Citron Cockatoo, do you want it?” ADVERTISEMENT Gera replied excitedly, “Heck yeah, I want him!” He was delighted that the tide had turned, and he could finally make his wish come true.“So I came to the store to pick it up, and you won’t believe how beautiful he was.

It was like love at first sight,” Gera says. “She put him on my shoulder, and he literally sat on my shoulder like we’ve known one another. It was like the most amazing bond; it was instant.”After getting to know each other, Gera and Koko developed a beautiful friendship.

Today, they’re inseparable and do almost everything together. Since learning more about cockatoos, Gera decided to write a book to help educate others.“There’s so much that I’ve been learning. Remember, he’s not a caged bird; this is a real-time shoulder bird.
