Significant sighting

  5 Jan 2019

This is only the fourth definitive record of a gang-gang successfully raising a chick in the Canberra area. Would greatly appreciate and further sightings elsewhere

Author's notes

One gang gang nestling in hollow at bottom right, note red mohawk. Adult male guarding hollow. My first nestling sighting this summer.
