Galah

This female was with her mate checking out potential nesting hollows. A pair of Rainbow Lorikeets - above and just out of shot - were doing the same, hence the screechy displaying Galah.

 

Galahs have a pleasant and distinctive contact call in flight but their protracted screech sounds, to me anyway, like someone strangling a Sulphur-crested Cockatoo.
