In this short video clip, male Palm Cockatoos use a tool to attract female Palm Cockatoos. The mating behavior is very fascinating. What an incredibly beautiful and intelligent species! :)

I don't think I've ever seen a palm cockatoo. They kind of look like mcaws. Beautiful birds!

It was incredible. I have heard of them before and I know they are kept as pets. I just never knew they did stuff like that.

Actually we got 2 plam cockatoo in the club, both are a few years old and really tame.
The one in the photo is the smaller one, the other one is so much larger, as large as a blue and gold macaw.
Haven't seen it on the market for a while.
