Default [pics] more Gang-gang Cockatoos male & female

The beautifully coloured male Gang-gang Cockatoo, with the scarlet coloured head & crest feathers. This must be one of the most beautiful birds in Australia. These cockatoos also have a very distinct & instantly recognisable screech, kind of like a the sound of a creaky door.

Thanks for posting those, Adam. I'm with Bob Brennan - I knew about sulphur crested cockatoos (in fact our rescue aviary has two and, even among domesticated parrots they are extraordinarily friendly) but had never heard of a gang-gang.

I'm guessing that they're a male and female. Nice shots.
