Bird Species

The Gang-gang Cockatoo is a striking looking parrot native to eastern and south eastern Australia. It is relatively uncommon and is often located in alpine forests and is usually feeding at the top of eucalyptus trees on the seed pods. They are more common around the city of Canberra in the ACT. The male has the iconic red head and is easily identifiable from the dark grey female. The Gang-gang Cockatoo has a very distinctive call which is best described as a creaky door.

The Story Behind The Photo

The Gang-gang Cockatoo was at the top of my bucket list of parrots to photograph. The males bright red head with the fluffy crest feathers was just so appealing. I saw them several times but had limited photographic opportunities until I visited a location in the Blue Mountains of NSW in February 2018. The Gang-gang has developed an appetite for the introduced Hawthorn bush berry seeds which are plentiful at this location. The birds come for a few weeks every year and I was so lucky to get two sessions with them. I made the most of it taking thousands of photos. This was my favourite of the male.
