Pink and Grey Galahs

Brrr! My shot for today ! So dark and cold, feels like 6 degrees outside., sheep weather alert. I put some food out and this pair fronted up! Albany, Western Australia.

 

Nikon 80 400mm 1600 ISO !!!

 

The Galah (pronounced /g?'l??/), Eolophus roseicapilla, also known as the Rose-breasted Cockatoo, Galah Cockatoo, Roseate Cockatoo or Pink and Grey, is one of the most common and widespread cockatoos, and it can be found in open country in almost all parts of mainland Australia.

 

It is endemic in Australia (and introduced to Tasmania [1]), where its distinctive pink and grey plumage and its bold and loud behaviour make it a familiar sight in the bush and increasingly in urban areas. It appears to have benefited from the change in the landscape since European colonisation

    Nice shot. I've got males that come together to my garden and females that come together but I've not had a male and female together yet. The male in your photo is showing off and the female looks coy.

    Beautiful shot of this pair. We really must do something about putting food out. What sort of food do you use? If we put out seeds all that we get are doves.

    We use to have Galahs come feed at our shop competing with the King Parrots for the wild bird seed mix...beautiful capture
