A generous menu that's for the birds

The reason there are more gang-gangs in central Canberra, compared to Weston Creek, Tuggeranong or Gungahlin, is because there is more food for them there. Gang-gangs love the street trees with seeds like hawthorns, just like the cockatoos and king parrots love the prunus and plane trees. As a bonus, people love the blossoms, summer shade, autumn colours and winter sun from these lovely deciduous trees in central Canberra. The ACT planners and TAMS need to ditch their ideology and replace the eucalypt street trees with deciduous trees.
