Significant sighting

This is Baldy a healthy male who along with his female partner is currently feeding chicks. It is difficult to put trackers or markers on Gang-gang so sightings of Baldy is teh best way for us to understand how far a gang-gang may forage when raising chicks - so please keep those sightings of Baldy coming or email a location you saw him if you didn't capture a photo

User's notes

This is a bit distressing but I wonder if you are keeping records of sightings of gangs gangs with beak and feather disease. The female with this male appeared healthy.

Do you know the species of wattle that the female partner was feeding on. If not could you take a photo of the wattle and post with a comment that ties it back to this record.

Thanks Michael
