Significant sighting

5 Sep 2022

Baldy is a very distinctive bird - His recorded sightings are telling us much about Gang-gang movement. This and an earlier photo have confirmed that a mated pair return to the vicinity of where they nested previously and his movements last year set a distance 4km about how far a Gang-gang raising young will forage from a nest. Please keep the sightings coming in

User's notes

Could this be Baldy and partner dining on biodynamic Aranda Bushland? I think I just missed observing copulation as both birds flew off from the same obscured location. Nearby was a very salubrious nest box, though neither bird showed any interest.

Thanks Rob - yes this is Baldy on the return - it appears that his crest regrowth has not been as spectacular as another photo suggested. Would appreciate further sightings of baldy.
