For female white-fronted parrots, having a bad kiss is an understatement. Courting typically begins with mouth-to-mouth kissing by joining their beaks, allowing their tongues to touch. Slipping his tongue while making out is satisfactory, as the male parrot becomes aroused, prompting him to vomit into the mouth of his mate. However, to the female, this is only an appetizer which gets her in the mood for the intimacy which proceeds. The male shows affection for his lover by generously regurgitating his food. It’s not all bad news for the females as the male plays an active role in raising the offspring.
