In our front yard in Hughes this morning there was a large flock of Gang Gangs. it was difficult to get a final count because they kept on moving around, but it was something like:

2 adult pairs
8 immatures (6 male, 2 female)

Four offspring per pair seems an awful lot, so perhaps this was a GG creche.

And I suppose they could be mountain birds coming down early because of the bushfires, or southside urban birds after successful breeding.
