    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.

    We dropped down out of the forest to explore some more open agricultural land. We stopped briefly near a farm where there were several birds hanging around. My only decent pictures though were of a Galah on a tree. Such attractive birds, so full of character!

    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.
  9. 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.

    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
  11. 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.

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

    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

    SF 'You look that way and I'll look down here!'

    These two were getting a bit worried about being left by the adults but soon found them down the paddock digging up the horses sand menage, (they make quite a few holes in the sand which is covered in weeds and grass as we don't have horses any more). Hope you all get a smile!

    Hi all, my favorite female gave me a visit the other evening after the S/C Cockatoos had left, she sat on the fence outside the kitchen window and preened herself........the crest reminded me of paper balls hung on string for festive occasions..........she at least wasn't drenched this...
