Gang-Gang Cockatoos

A couple of days ago my neighbour rang to say ‘get outside quick and take your camera!’.  Out in the gum trees near our fenceline was a couple of Gang-gang Cockatoos and in other trees were their young family. The kiddies flew away as I approached but the parents remained long enough for me to get some shots, this one being the best.  The male has the red head.  They are on the endangered list in NSW but still considered to be plentiful in our state – although not usually where we live. So I was both surprised and delighted to see them close up!

  1. Wonderful photo! What a bonus to get a photo of a pair. I’ve never seen Gang-gangs in person but this photo makes me believe I am seeing them in person now.
