Yesterday (July 31st) the Gold Coast Bird Group visited the Venman Bushland National Park near Mt Cotton - South of Brisbane.We located 2+ Gang-gang Cockatoos (Callocephalon fimbriatum). A single bird was  intially found by Hans Beste, and subsequently viewed by the whole group. A further search of the area found a second bird and from the number and position of calls heard at least 3 birds were present. A general consensus of the group was that these birds did not act like 'escapees'! If these birds are indeed ' wild birds'  this could probably be the first record for Queensland.
The area where the birds were feeding was - the Eastern edge of the Picnic Area towards the main road.
