Sylvia they are not popular over in OZ.. We loved them...they are noisy and come in flocks in the large trees.Galahs form huge, noisy flocks which feed on seeds, mostly from the ground. Seeds of grasses and cultivated crops are eaten, making these birds agricultural pests in some areas. People are called Galah's if they are a fool or an idiot,

Great captures Joan. I hope you enjoyed your 'long-haul' holiday and your health was up to it.
I am still not over these birds after five years of living in Australia. The Galah is also known as a Pink and Grey Parrot. The Kookaburra and the Rainbow lorikeet, (also known as 28's, I don't know why that is), which you have posted captures of, have 'self-migrated' through South Australia and into Western Australia. My Australia Birds book was last undated in 1983 and shows the Lorikeets area to be from Far North Queensland, down the East Coast and around to Melbourne, so in less than thirty years they have moved around the coast to at least half way up the West Coast as well as their more traditional areas.
There are birds found on the east coast but not the west and in the far north but not the rest of Australia, and many other variables; coming from New Zealand I find that amazing, just shows how big the continent of Australia is, and you have seen more of it that I have, and I live here. :-)

John thanks or the information. we certainly have seen some wonderful parts of Australia...We have been to all the states now.. and am not sure that we will make it again.. the journey was so traumatic...enjoyable though and I managed it albeit not 100% fit all the time....over far too quickly. Home now to a beautiful Spring, our Bluebell woods full of glorious blooms and wonderful aromas... Lots more Australian wonders to post....
