The Australian Galah

 

Galah, Eolophus roseicapilla. (35 cm. Open areas. Very common.) The whole flock will “change colour” as they wheel, revealing the beautiful pink under-feathers. Many people can recall the day when seeing a galah was an event, but today they are one of the most prolific of country birds. They have continued to thrive, even during drought years, and obviously this is a species suited by land clearance and crop cultivation. (H. Frauca)
