Cockatoos are crested parrots that inhabit Australian and surround continents.
Galah (gilaa) is the bird’s Yuwaalaraay Aboriginal language name. The Yuwaalaraay are a tribe from northern New South Wales, around the area of Lightning Ridge. Galahs have a pink and pale pink head, a pink chest and pale grey wings and back, while males have brown irises and females often having pink or red ones.
Galahs are very fast – they are known to fly at 70km/hr and they can hang out and travel in flocks of 1000 birds at a time.
Galah couples share the nesting and parenting duties of their young. Baby Galahs stay with their parents for months, even years. They are monogamous and mate for life, bless them.
Well I think I captured her flamin' Galah presence. Such a pretty bird.
