I’ve never seen Gang gangs at our place in Gilmore. They do seem to like hanging around the older central Canberra suburbs. Back in the mid 90’s I worked in a building near Hotel Kurrajong and the g-gs loved the conifers in the hotel grounds. They didn’t care if you stood there and watched them either even though they were not that high up in the trees. 

I have noticed a LOT more corellas around Tuggeranong than there were 10 years ago. Not sure why that would be.

The same g-gang story applies here @ 12 Stephens Pl Garran; tho only 1 irregular butcher bird.

I was just speaking to a friend in Garran who has Gang-gangs coming to feeders morning and evening, up to 10 birds.  At present I hear a pair passing through the eucs perhaps once a day.  This shows, I think, how localised G-g movements are and how linked to immediate food sources.  The same Garran person has a pair of meat-seeking butcherbirds, again believed to have a nest not far away.
