Ian Warden's excellent article in Friday's CT about Gang-gang Cockatoos mentioned the difficulty in identifying juveniles - the challenge she had was separating juvenile and adult females. A neighbour of mine asked my advice, as she saw some at her place yesterday and wanted to report them through the ALA portal - I have promoted the survey in the Wamboin Whisper newsletter.

Attached is a scanned extract from HANZAB covering Gang-gang ID: Higgins, PJ (ed.) 1999, Handbook of Australian, New Zealand & Antarctic birds, vol. 4: parrots to Dollarbird, OUP, Melbourne, pp. 94-5.

Here are the illustrations of the birds from the same source: .
