cockatoo panting

My female umbrella cockatoo will sometimes start panting and or breathing real hard. Sometimes she looks like she is struggling to breath correctly.
I had someone tell me this has something to do with her wanting a mate??

It is hard to tell what is going on without seeing the bird in person. I think that is why everyone has been hesitant to answer your question.

If she is struggling to get a breath, then you need to take her to see an Avian Vet ASAP.

Another idea, if you really don't think it is a health issue, is to contact a Cockatoo breeder and ask them.
