Do lorikeets recover from the death of a mate?
by Sunny Gallagher
Last Friday while driving on a freeway, our car's windscreen hit a low-flying lorikeet (green body, abour 25 cm). Its mate was flying ahead and was not hit. My husband and I were devastated.
Would the surviving mate grief until death? (I read that they mate for life, but what does that mean?) Or would it find another mate? Please let us know.
Looking forward to your reply,
Thank you very much,
