Four Ladies and One Man (2014)

Parrots are like people. They get on well with each other or not. In the wild a pair-bond between parrots often lasts a lifetime. Captive pairs, however, can face relationship challenges. I observed these five Red-tailed Black Cockatoos in a large, spacious flight cage. What struck me was the way they socialized with each other, that I would describe as ‘cheerful'. I was also caught by their inquisitiveness and intelligent outlook. They showed their curiosity by deliberate glances. I believe the male had difficulty choosing which lady he liked most.
