A black cockatoo mates for life. We used to have a pair in the area. You never saw them very often, and the last time I saw them was around the time that a mini tornado ripped through the area in November last year.

Lately we have seen one flying around the area calling out as it flies. It strikes me as if it is lonely and calling for it's mate. I could be wrong. It's mate could be elsewhere or it may just be an offspring from the pair I saw last year. Still, it is a majestic bird, huge in size and very beautiful.
