“FLETCHER” – Male Gang-gang Cockatoo

Fletcher - Australian Gang-gang Cockatoo.

I love the distinctive wispy curly crests and stunning feather patterns of these  beautiful Cockatoos. The  Gang-gang Cockatoo is a small cockatoo. The handsome male  is easily distinguishable by his quirky crimson curly crest which looks like a feather duster.  His crimson crest has awarded him  the nicknames of  Red-headed or Red-Crowned Cockatoo.

Gang-gang Cockatoos usually live in the alpine areas of Australia. They  are also regular visitors to  Canberra, for their loyalty  the Gang-gang  Cockatoo has been appointed  the honor of being the bird emblem for Australia’s Capital Territory.

These little cockatoos are generally people friendly and are known to growl when eating an indication they are happy not a warning to humans.  They are  also known to make sounds that resemble a rusty gate on a hinge or a cork being removed from a bottle.  These funny sounds are apparently characteristic cockatoo communication chatter.

Thank to  bird life photographer  Linda Wohlrab for graciously providing the reference photo for this painting.
