One is such a lonely number

Pink Galahs mate for life.

Choosing a life partner is an important task you’ve got to get right. From the guy's perspective, it’s pretty simple. Pick a female, follow her around, and screech at her until she gives in. Impress her with your squark. And whatever you do, don’t take no for an answer.

The Galah in the video below is no exception. He’s on a mission to get his girl — no matter how often she gives him the hard no.

First, he follows her across the road, then up the tree. And even when she says no, not once, not twice, but three times, he still persists.

You’ve gotta give him points for trying!
