    Most people are unaware that Cockatoos are one of the breeds
    of birds that in the wild 'get divorced' from their mates.
    While some species stay together for as long as they live,
    Cockatoos do not. If your bird wants a 'divorce' from you,
    there is little you can do about it except ride it out and
    hope he choses another person in your family, or find him a
    good home with someone the bird chooses. Good luck either
    way.
