Gang Gang Cockatoo (Callocephalon fimbriatum)

It is hard not to have a soft spot for the Gang Gang. This charismatic cockatoo is found in forested country in SE Australia from the Hunter north of Sydney to SW Victoria, inc. alpine areas. This bird is the faunal emblem of the City of Canberra. It is very much a feature of the city, especially in autumn and winter when birds come out of the mountains to feast on berries of both native and exotic trees. They can be quite confiding when feeding. These birds are one of the joys of living in this part of the world!
