When a wailing cockatoo hatchling is hungry, everybody knows it. While their power is nowhere near as strong as it will be when grown, their sorrowful cries can still be easily heard from several yards away. A dilligent owner will first and foremost teach their hatchlings to only use their powers on command. Until they learn this, it is recommended that those raising these birds work in teams, taking shifts to make sure the hatchlings are quickly tended without driving the owners - or neighbors - to frustrated exhaustion.

In the southern lands from Taggelisk to the Ixan Jungle, the harsh terrain can be deadly in any season, isolating and threatening small communities and travellers. To combat this, call towers and waystations riddle the area, manned by keepers of trained, magical cockatoos. While no louder than any other cockatoo at the source, the calls of these birds can carry far beyond the range of their unenhanced kin, passing messages via complex patterns of shrieks, wails, and some words. Originally created by magi, over the years enough birds have escaped and bred with their wild counterparts that messages can be disrupted by wild flocks, so they are repeated, with brief pauses, until a response signal is received three times.
