Galah is one of Australia's best loved birds, at least if you're not a farmer.
It's highly comical antics (slipping on its back down the garden slide, repeatedly
holding on to the vanes of a windmill until it falls off) has even lead to
the term "Doing the galah", meaning to act foolishly.
The Galah is also known as the rosy-headed cockatoo and the rose-breasted
cockatoo and is abundant across almost all of mainland Australia.
This picture of a female galah was taken in the Lane Cove National Park in
New South Wales.
Australia is fortunate to have wonderful, unique and iconic wildlife. This site is dedicated to promoting its enjoyment and preservation.
