Gang-gang cockatoos are small sized grey cockatoos with a soft wispy crest.
The male gang-gang has a slate-grey body with a bright scarlet red head, face and crest. Females lack a colourful head.
Gang-gangs have a distinctive rasping croaky screech.
They are found in woodlands and wet eucalyptus forests. Although secure, they are experiencing declining populations due to clearing of old-growth forests resulting in the decrease of suitable nesting sites and feeding grounds.
