Author's notes

A pair of Gang-gang Cockatoos were in some trees near the saddle of Red Hill and Davison’s Hill. One was calling and there was possibly a response from somewhere else. The bird calling was a male in a tree. There was female in a different tree about 10 m away. She was on a branch close to the tree with the male but she was quiet. Then two more Gang-gangs, a male and female, flew in from the south, forcing the male out of his tree into the tree where the quiet female was. The second pair stayed in the tree the male had been in, with the second male calling. The second pair of Gang-gangs only stayed a little while before flying off to an isolated gum tree further up Davidson Hill with the original pair of Gang-gangs following them to that tree. There were already two Laughing Kookaburras in that tree and they quickly chased most of the Gang-gangs away, although one of the Gang-gangs may have stayed high in the tree. The Gang-gangs few off to the south along the side of Davidson Hill.
