    Cosying up

    I thinks this pair of Galahs were planning to nest in a nearby hollow.
  2. Peeking through

    Peeking through

    Moving on a bit a found a Galah looking at me between two large branches. I had to zoom out a bit because my camera seemed to be trying to focus on a branch!! Had a nightmare of a day. My car insurance is due for renewal next month and the company I've been with for years has upped it by...
  3. On-looker


    Then awaiting his turn was a Galah sitting in an overhanging tree. I don't know, but whatever pose they take up they always look cute, don't you think?
  4. Safety in numbers?

    Safety in numbers?

    A couple of Galah had joined in with a flock of Red-rumped Parrots (a few more of them in another section of the tree).
  5. The first of the wildlife I promised you

    The first of the wildlife I promised you

    See.... you thought nothing could live in the dry habitat, didn't you. It wasn't long before a couple of Galah flew over on our walk. Interestingly, it seems Galahs were the species I took most pictures of on my trip. Not really surprising I guess LOL
  6. Smelling the flowers

    Smelling the flowers

    We were now exploring the hilly rural suburb of Bonogin above Gold Coast. We came across a Galah foraging at the back of a wide grass very beside the road.

    Males have brown eyes, females have red.

    I thought this made for a rather attractive picture with the three Galahs in the trees.
  9. Galahs


    Pair of Galahs investigating a hollow in the tree.
  10. What's going on?

    What's going on?

    On a tree the far side of the dam sat a female Galah. She seemed to be supervising the activities of the rest of the flock underneath.
  11. Incoming


    I was watching a few Galah flying around and followed this one in as he came to settle on the dead tree over the water.
  12. Deep drinking

    Deep drinking

    The flock of Galahs flew in again, so pretty and entertaining too. I followed this one in and watched as he leant right down to get a drink. I still don't know how he didn't fall in LOL
  13. Matriarch


    Well, I don't know whether she was or not, but this female Galah certainly looked the part! A flock of them came in, some settling in the trees on the other side of the dam, while a few sat on a dead log in the middle of the water.

    The Clown

    Galah's are so entertaining to watch and pretty too I think. One of the many visitors to Hans & Judly's garden.

    I know that we have plenty of galah photos on this forum but I was happy to get these shots of one leaving a waterhole.

    Pretty in Pink

    The next day Ken took me to one of his favourite patches but on the way stopped off at Lindum Park to see what was around. Mostly stilts, but I didn't get a better picture of one than I'd already had, but as we were leaving I spotted this Gala, with colours like a pretty iced cake LOL
  20. Galahs


    Galahs enjoying the first rain in months as the wet season arrives in the Top End of Australia.

    Galah 'roseicapilla'

    The Western Australia race taken with my little camcorder as always in our uncle's back garden in Safety Bay, WA....it beats a Dunnock!
  24. In the shade

    In the shade

    How neatly they positioned themselves to fit into that shadow from the tree! I'm sure they knew I wanted to take a picture of them!! We've got a Little Corella there with Galah. I think that may be the first time I got a picture with both of them together.
  25. Keeping Watch

    Keeping Watch

    On another dead tree in the middle of the water were these two Galahs. Not sure what they were doing, but thinking now... could they be excavating a nest hole? Or would the hole be excavated through the bark? Or maybe they were just up to mischief LOL
