    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

    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!
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. On a tree

    On a tree

    We went out early the next morning (well before breakfast) and set off in the general direction we'd been the day before, but then turned off up a track into the forest, going to Sharp Point on the other side of the peninsula. This was where Alex and June did their patch work at one time. On...

    Every cloud

    Approaching our berth, a Silver Gull provided an escort for us. Trouble was I was so intent watching him, I was too slow to grab a picture of a Whiskered Tern that flew below me!!!! grrrr But at least I saw him! Lifers by the end of this day: 198
  10. Framed


    Galahs always have to get in on the act, don't they. This on looks like he's checking me out to see what I'm up to LOL
  11. Supervising


    A Galah had also arrived and sat in the tree for a few moments, seemingly checking out the activity at the water trough before deciding whether to join in or not.
  12. Social Distancing

    Social Distancing

    This is what it looks like in avian terms. Not doing too badly at it I guess. Red-rumped Parrot and a couple of Galahs. I took this picture at Rawnsley at the end of October, when we'd not even heard of this term LOL.
  13. Morning fly-over

    Morning fly-over

    Over breakfast we discussed our move for the morning. Peter had heard there was a water hole at the Rawnsley Camp a couple of km up the track, so off we set. Gosh it was hot going with no shade at all. We hadn't got too far when these two Galahs flew over.
  14. A good job

    A good job

    .... he didn't completely raise his crest or it would have gone out of the frame!! He landed on the fence to overlook proceedings in the garden. Although I'd already seen plenty of these on my travels, this was the first to show his face at Hans' garden.
  15. Everywhere


    .... but aren't they pretty!! After having had our cuppie at Hinterland, we then set off for a drive around the northern suburbs of Gold Coast, mostly around the Bonogin. At one point we tried a walk into a forest, but it was extremely hot that day and after a short distance realised we...
  16. The pink and white one

    The pink and white one

    We dropped down out of the forest to rather more agricultural land and paused for a bit at the side of the road as we saw some bird activity. My only decent shot there though was from a Galah that settled on a tree.
  17. Parrots galore

    Parrots galore

    This didn't happen too often, to see three species together. Galah, Rainbow Lorikeet and Sulphur-crested Cockatoos!!

    A gooseberry?

    Making our way back towards the Homestead for lunch we came across three Galahs in a tree, a male and female but there's another partnerless one there in the background
  19. Pretty commoner

    Pretty commoner

    Galahs are found pretty much throughout Australia (at least the parts I visited!). This is a female with the reddish eye and she was checking to see if there was room for her to land on the fallen tree in the water.
  20. Thirsty


    A flock of Galahs flew in, most settling in the tree, then some started to drop down onto the dead branch in the water. There's 5 there, you can just see one drinking on the far right.
  21. Chatty


    There was now a Galah in a dead tree on the dam, seems to be talking to himself! The light was beginning to go now, as you can see. So it was time to return to Cunnamulla, my base for the next two nights. Hans and Judy had accommodation at Bowra, but they were full for my first two days... I...

    Pink and white

    ... well that's the overall impression of what you see with these guys. Really quite pretty and seem to be everywhere (at least where there's some water). Now for a confession... I had pronounciation problems with both birds and places and this was one of them. It's not Gala (as in the...
