The Gang-gang Cockatoo is a small, stocky cockatoo with a wispy crest, large, broad wings and a short tail. The adult male has a distinctive scarlet red head and crest, with the rest of the body slate-grey. The adult female has a dark grey head and crest, with the feathers of the underparts edged pink and yellow. They are endemic to South Eastern Australia, although they are considered vulnerable in New South Wales.
Having just encountered these magnificent birds in person, they are much quieter than their sulfur crested cousins, making soft calls to one another as they feast on blossoms and soft green gum nuts.
