Focus on Birds: Galahs

20 Nov


Some say that their feathers lack the brilliance of some types of parrots, bur I still believe that they are exceptionally pretty birds.

Their pink and grey plumage is perfectly set off by the green, green grass.

This photograph was taken near where Ron and I live. in suburban Sydney, N.S.W., Australia.

What’s for Lunch? A Galah Finds Out…

21 Apr

What’s for lunch?

I’m guessing an assortment of grass seeds…

This menu may seem dull to us, but I suppose it’s a smorgasbord if you’re a Galah.

There’s nothing nicer than seeing our beautiful Australian parrots living free. Recently I spotted a small flock near our home.

These pretty birds are fairly large and are sometimes kept as pets. They are wonderful talkers. But for my money they’re best in the wild, free and untamed.

At Day’s End

10 Jan

At day’s end: that when I captured this image of a Galah perched in a large Cotoneaster shrub.

I see these pretty, coloured birds from time to time. Strangely, I’m yet to spot one in the local bushland park. These parrots seem to prefer the suburban gardens and grasses. Normally, where I live they cluster together in small flocks.

The dimming light seems to create a quite muted and delicate air.

Enjoy another Australian beauty!
