Hi All

I saw two Gang-gang Cockatoos on the Conder side of Tuggeranong Hill yesterday morning. One was an adult male and the other was either a female or juvenile. I’ve lived here around 13 years and haven’t seen them here before (I’ve heard them once or twice, but that was ages ago).

With that number of birds are you sure they weren't Little Ravens?

1. Around 7 am a flock of about 15 gang gangs flying purposefully south west over Curtin.

2. Between 30 and 40 Australian ravens flying  purposefully in the stream over about 15 minutes, also south west, but this time over Hughes, around 8:30 pm today.


I don’t think I’ve seen this type of movement in either species before.
