The National Aquarium is celebrating a very special birthday today: Sugar, our umbrella cockatoo, is turning 15!
Sugar’s favorite enrichment activity is tearing up shredded newspaper. He also loves sharpening his beak on wood blocks!
Don’t forget Sugar’s favorite treats – peanuts and coconut!
When Sugar gets excited (often by the sight of peanuts or coconut!) he raises his crest of feathers to communicate that to our staff and guests!
Sugar is one the animals you can see at our daily Animal Encounters and you can often see him in the Overlook!
Sugar LOVES to play in and with tubes!
Cardboard, PVC pipe, you name it – Basically, he loves anything he can look through!
Stop by National Aquarium, Baltimore today and you might see Sugar during one of our Animal Encounters!
