Wild Bird Wednesday 303 - Galah

It been a very, very busy week - so this week's WBW is rather more of a photo-essay than anything else.

These birds are Galahs (Eolophus roseicapilla) which were feeding on a sports oval.  The bird with the grey looking head is a young bird.

  1. the galah was a bird I found quite hard to photograph. We saw it quite often but in places we were not welcome to enter. So they were too far off for great shots. Love to see yours.

  15. Are their heads actually pink or is that my imagination. They are beautiful ... colors you could decorate your bedroom with, Ha! So many different parrot families in Australia, but this a another first for me. It took me three tries to post this week. I failed to realize there was a "privacy" requirement. But, once my brain zeroed in on it( who knows why), I checked the boxes and here I am ... Phew! So it must be really hard and time consuming for you to keep this blog going ... I don't think I have thanked you in awhile, so THANK YOU, STEWART it has been and still is a trip sharing with you :)
