Author's notes

A sizeable group of Gang-gang Cockatoos occupied a gum tree. They stayed in the tree for a while, such that they were still in the same tree when I walked back along the path. There were at least three males. I saw at least two female as well. There were also at least two immature birds. At one stage, these two immature males were on the same branch. The lower one had some seed cases on a small twig in its beak. The gang-gang approached the other immature male, seeming to pass the food to him, where upon they engaged in beak rubbing. The bottom bird then spread its wings. followed by the top bird and they both started squawking while appearing to bite at each other. While those two were carrying-on the adult males stayed in one part of the tree and the females in another part.
