Found mostly in alpine regions of Australia,the gang-gang cockatoo is a relatively small cockatoo. A bird characterised by a grey body and contrasting red head seen exclusively on males. They have a call resembling a squeaky gate or the opening of a wine bottle. Considered as the most primitive example of cockatoos it is the bird emblem of the Australian Capital Territory. The name gang-gang comes from a Aboriginal language, possibly from Wiradjuri.
There are 4 plates in the Australian Bird collection - Laughing Kookaburra, Gang-Gang Cockatoo, Helmeted Honeyeater and Black Swan.
