Gang Gang Cockatoo

The Gang Gang cockatoo are not often seen and keep to themselves. They are not hard to miss as the male has a distinctive scarlet red head and crest, with the rest of the body slate-grey. The female has a dark grey head and crest, with the feathers of the underparts edged pink and yellow.
We don’t have many photos of them at Uccello Lane – but during March on the very hot days we kept many large bowl of water filled up every day and we were rewarded by the Gang Gangs and the Musk Lorikeets coming to visit.
