GAL1 Galah

The 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.
