Author's notes

While photographing in the area behind the old the Telstra building I heard the unmistakeable call of a Gang-gang Cockatoo. I easily saw the male in a tree where there had been a successful breeding over the summer months. (Reported by several people here, my https://canberra.naturemapr.org/Community/Sightings/Details/4184509 refers) He was sitting on a branch calling. Unfortunately, the branch above was casting a shadow over half his body so it was hard to get a good photograph. Initially, I was not able to see the female but going around the back of the tree, I saw the female was sitting quietly on a branch in the shadow of the tree. Again, not a good photograph.
