Fun fact: in Australia, if you called someone a Galah, you would be insinuating that they are acting silly or fooling around and this stems from the playful clown-like behaviour that is observed by these gorgeous yet cheeky birds in the wild. Galahs, also known as Rose-breasted cockatoos or Pink and Grey cockatoos, are one of Australia's most wide spread parrots being found all over the country. They are often seen in local fields or open plains areas and their grazing flocks can also consist of other members of the cockatoo family such as Corellas and Sulphur-crested cockatoos. They are incredibly social and gather in large noisy flocks of anywhere between 10-1000 birds to forage and feed on grass seeds.

Males and females are relatively similar in appearance however males have dark blackish brown eyes and females have reddish brown eyes. Galahs are also known to form life long bonds with their partners.

We perched this pair on a Silver-leaved gum (Eucalyptus pulverulenta) which is native to southern New South Wales.
