I'm not sure if this is of interest as it was taken in 1979.

Thanks Tammy yes very interested to get ANY feeding sightings, this is Sorbus domestica - I only have two other records of Gang-gangs eating it. Sorbus has become a bit of a weed and was a gift from the people of Scotland to the people of the ACT.

Thanks Michael, it's very interesting finding out about the gang gangs. I remember this sighting quite well as it was the first time I ever saw a gang gang and couldn't quite believe what I was seeing. Such a beautiful bird.
