Callocephalon fimbriatum (identifiable birds)

Gang-gang Cockatoo (named birds)

Nearly all we know about local Gang-gang movements has come from reported sightings of the distinctive male "Baldy" who travelled up to 4km to forage when feeding two chicks in the nest. We hope to learn more about how Gang-gangs move through the landscape from further recordings of Baldy and other Gang-gangs with distinctive features, such as Pie (with one eye), Jake (with the peg leg) and the distinguished Goldfeather. Please keep an eye out and report any sighting of these birds. In addition to local movement, your sightings will help tell us how far birds may travel in a day or two to access bird seed feeding points and how important (either in a positive or negative way) this feeding may be to maintaining Canberra's Gang-gang population.Gang-gangs are so dextourous that any physical banding or marking of birds is frought with difficulties, so we are really relying on you for this important information.

If you come across a new distinctive Gang-gang please give it a name and add it to this gallery of distinctive beauties, by adding it as a sighting.
