Gang Gang Cockatoos tend to prefer the ranges and tablelands, so we seldom see them on the coast. It was quite a thrill when this group flew in as we were watching the fairywrens. They hung around for a couple of days, feeding in the low trees. Not sure what they were eating, they were nibbling on leaves, perhaps insect larvae? The reserve also had large numbers of Sulphur Crested Cockatoos, while across the road at Billy Grace hundreds of Galahs came in to roost each day.
