Gang-gang Cockatoo near Blackheath in Blue Mountains, Australia

What an unexpected delight to see this gang-gang cockatoo feeding in the Blue Mountains forest. The distinguishable marking of this small cockatoo is the scalloped grey plumage. The male sports the bright red head and crest. Females are predominately grey. The range for this handsome parrot is limited to a narrow sliver in the southeast corner of New South Wales. Because they are so rare, your best chance of seeing a gang-gang is as the bird emblem for the Australian Capital Territory.
