Drumming out his ardour...

(Probosciger aterrimus)
A male Palm Cockatoo (right above) uses a branch as a drumstick in front of an admiring female.   The parrot is one of the very few species known that can recognize a beat.   It is also known as the Goliath Cockatoo or Great Black Cockatoo and is a native of New Guinea.   One can only guess at how much affection he drummed up from his female friend.

Please comment if you wish.

When you look at them how does one know which one is male and which one female? To me they look alike.
