This morning’s article by Ian Warden on the Gang-gang survey in the Canberra Times ( ) reports Chris Davey as saying that we currently don’t know if GGs breed in urban Canberra and that there’s ” no proof, yet, that they ever nest here”.


There is however a documented Gang-gang nest report from December 2009 when TAMS cut down the tall E viminalis tree in Corroboree Park (on “safety grounds”) , and had to call in  the RSPCA to remove two GG nestlings from a nest in that ill-fated tree – see the details in the Chatline archives below.
