Dear Bird-listers 

The August Gang-gang Muster Count (21-27 August) starts on Thursday. This is a blitz style count where we need as many people as possible looking out for Gang-gangs.  We are also interested in nil records so we know where Gang-gangs don't occur as well as their favourite haunts so we get a good picture of their distribution in the region. 
The beauty of the Muster count is you can provide valuable data for the survey from your own backyard or local park or reserve. The count is very simple you pick up spot you spend time most days of the week and walk around for a few minutes scan (ears and eyes) within a 100m radius and record the most gang-gangs you see or record zero if you see or hear none.  There is a paper form on the website to download or you can fill in the online form at the end of the Muster week.
 Please email any sightings of breeding behaviour to m("","ggquery");">   

If you have school aged children or grandchildren, we are also running an exciting student art competition Imagining Gang-gangs to encourage kids to learn more about the Gang-gang by making artworks.  Launched last Friday, the competition is open to all students (5-18 years) in the COG area of interest. Kids can choose the art medium of choice. Entries close on 7 November 2014 and artworks will be exhibited from 26 to 30 November 2014, followed by a travelling exhibition to community venues.​  There is a comp poster/flyer on the Gang-gang survey page. Please distribute the comp Poster/Flyer through your kids school networks and let your local school and the art teacher know about the competition. 

Warm regards
