Gang Gang Cockatoo
Although not endangered, these are under pressure and have disappeared from Northern Tasmania and King Island due to land clearing.
These fascinating birds will sit for hours during the warmer part of the day, cuddling up and preening each other. They are a difficult bird in controlled situations as they tend to over preen, and in a lot of cases, feather pluck.
They are closely related to the Galah and have been known to cross breed. They feed on seeds, fruit, nuts and insects. These birds, when in captivity, enjoy some chops and cooked chicken bones.
