I agree Chris that a better photograph could be found for this header of the Gang Gang page in the Canberra Times.  This will aid people’s recognition of the species and stimulate interest.


My reasoning for suggesting a better picture is that I have often found when talking to people that they don’t know what a Gang Gang looks like! – can you believe that!  Sad but true.

I looked up The Canberra Times on Google, got to their website, typed in Gang gang and only got to items about the GG logo and other references to the word "Gang". So I don't know. What was the purpose of the article and why would they run it again? We had a GG with PBFD mentioned here about a week ago.

Does anyone have views on the picture of the Gang-gang in today's Canberra Times page 12?


It looks to me as though the bird has Beak and Feather Disease and I am thinking of asking the CT to pick a better picture.  I cannot help but wonder that the picture has been chosen because of the 'comical' look of the bird.


Would be interested to hear your comments.
