Eolophus roseicapillus

The Galah lives in Australia and Tasmania. It is one of the most common and widespread cockatoos. It can be found in open country in almost all parts of mainland Australia.

Galahs fly acrobatically, but spend a good part of the day sheltering from heat in the foliage of trees. Large noisy flocks of birds congregate at night. Galahs form permanent pair bonds, although a bird will take a new partner if the other one dies.

The above picture was taken in the Attica Zoological Park, Athens, Greece, in June 2007.
