|Gang-gang Cockatoo Callocephalon
|Grampians NP, Victoria, Australia
The Gang-gang Cockatoo is distributed in south-east Australia from the Grampians in Victoria where these photos were taken to the Hunter Valley in NSW. It is found in mountain forests and denser woodlands where it feeds on eucalyptus seed pods and other fruit and seeds on the trees.
The male is unmistakable with its red head and wispy, forward-bending crest. The body is grey with pale margins to the feathers. The female (seen in photo 3) has a grey head and crest with buffy-red margins to the grey feathers on the breast.
