Canberra Ornithological Group (COG) launches the “Gang-Gang Cockatoo Quest” on QuestaBird

As part of its 50th anniversary, the Canberra Ornithologists Group (COG) is using QuestaBird to help collect information about the Gang-gang Cockatoo — the iconic but little understood species of bird that appears in its logo. The Gang-gang, with its red-tufted crown and notoriously loud squawk, holds a special significance in the ACT; and yet there’s very little known about the bird’s abundance or movements. “The Gang-gang Cockatoo Quest” began on February 1 and continues for one year.

For more information about this quest, or about QuestBird in general, please contact us here.
