Cookie the cockatoo has reason to celebrate. He just turned 81!
He is the only animal at Brookfield Zoo that is from the original collection, dating back to the zoo’s opening in 1934. So, Brookfield Zoo decided to throw him a birthday party with the staff. At :20 into the video, they begin to sing Happy Birthday, and Cookie joins in, tweeting some notes himself. How adorable!
According to the zoo, Cookie has been in retirement since September 2009 but still receives plenty of attention from animal care staff, as you can see from the video.
