They are a common bird around Canberra and generally very easy to film. (They are the faunal emblem of the ACT and COG's emblem). Our long-term study results show them to occur on average at least once at about 70% of garden survey sites during each year. Other good places to find them include the Botanic Gardens and behind the War Memorial. However they are far more common in winter than summer, so the suggested the timing of the visit is far from optimal. During summer most of the local population are in the ranges, so probably Tidbinbilla reserve may be best at this time.

i have a friend from America coming over for a few days and he is very keen to get video of gang gangs preferably feeding. does anyone have any confident suggestion near sydney or melbourne. happy to drive for a few hours if likelihood high. have on previously visits looked more generally and found most black cockatoos up close but this one has always evaded me when he is here.
thanks for any help
