Hi Mickey,
You are nearly right so be pleased with yourself.
Yes, it is a Gang Gang. The ‘squeaky gate’ call gives it away as a Gang Gang 
anyway but it is a young one which has not developed its adult coloured plumage.
Keep up the bird watching! Cheers

    Hey everyone,

    I'm new to COG and I spotted a bird at Strangers Pond today but I'm not 
sure what it is. I was wondering if anyone could identify it? I have a video 
(the link is below), it's not very good, though it does record the birds call 
so that might give someone a clue.

    The bird looked almost like a galah in size and features only it was 
entirely grey. I couldn't see fine details due to distance and lack of 
binoculars. I'm wondering if it might be a female Gang-gang cockatoo?
