Gang Gang
Gang Gang Cockatoos - Callocephalon fimbriatum

Gang Gangs tend to visit during Autumn and Winter to take advantage of the seed crops from a number of deciduous and evergreen trees. Liquidambar and Cypress are particular favourites.
The male has the bright red/orange head while the female has the pinkish markings on her breast. Again, immatures tend to look like females.

Gang Gangs eat Cotoneaster, a plant that provides food for a number of parrot species in winter, showing that even serious environmental weeds can have some use although on balance.
