Margaret your birds are fantastic. I love them in Europe we don;t have them. Travel safely. Love
They make a lovely pet and live for years and you can teach them to talk if bought when young. They are a parrot.Thanks.
Such exotic birds! The town looks lovely too!
Common parrot in Australia Craig. The town gets rather hot in summer, a few aboriginals about that town, hence 'dry' areas. No Alcohol in other words.
Are beautiful, the birds of the first image .Kisses
They are really a lovely Parrot.
I've never seen these birds. They are beautiful !!Greetings
They are lovely, plenty of them about.
Love the galahs. They are visiting us at the moment, and more than welcome.The bridge shot is spectacular too.Goodness you are covering the country quickly.
Beautiful Parrots. Thanks.We are in one way travelling quickly but on the other hand we are not. We stay in ok places for a couple of nights then move on...we have a long way to go yet.
I've never seen birds like that before
No doubt exclusive to Australia perhaps, haven't looked that one up for a 'fact'
Such cheeky birds - full of mischief.Had one from a chick till he (Paulie) died when wewere kids - he was 16 years old. He was buriedwith all pomp and ceremony that my two sisters considered fitting.I think they even approached Mum and Dad to have the Catholic priestofficiate !!!!When he spoke (talked) he was easy to understand, but hewas a obstinate fellow. Not allowed inside as he was a great ripper of furniture and curtains etc.The day he died he climbed up the clothes line whilst the washing was beingput up and just gave an almighty farewell screech and fell off. Mayhem prevailed!When I came home from boarding college - 1960 was the year - I was promptlytaken out to this grave to pay my respects by my two sisters!Strange that even now when I am introduced to someone called Paul,I immediately think of dear ole faithful "Paulie".Our aging cat and dog also missed their faithful friend - they were a strange trio.I guess today I'll be thinking of Paulie all day.Lovely blog and thanks for the memories.CheersColin PS: Lovely sunny winter day - I even slept in until 7.45 am !!!!!!!
The spirit of "Dear Paulie"9.00 am and a pair of galahs are sitting on the power lines right outsidemy balcony preeming themselves. Galahs still appear here in Brisbane tobrighten up your day and annouce their presence!Like me galahs disapprove of crows and put the crows to flight - ha ha.Colin
Oh dear, you have me laughing :) but we do get attached to our pets. Must be a day for Galahs then..haven't heard of seen any here in The Alice.
You had a dog, cat, galah trio?? Me too. A german shepherd, a ginger tabby and the galah, all roaming the backyard and sleeping together in the sun in winter, in the shade in summer.
Your photos are extraordinary!
Thank you Mildred.
I had never seen such birds before. Good photo of them.
Thanks I was trying to get better ones but they kept moving as birds do.
Just checked Margaret.Galahs are only native to mainland Australia - authorities are not even sure whetherthey are native to Tasmania. They may have been taken there from the mainland.They live for up to 80 years of age!!!I guess "Paulie" was an exception or his toilet talking was his downfall - ha ha.Just looked up the history of galahs on wiki.Colin
Oh are they, thanks for that and for looking...know doubt someone took a few to Tasmania and they flew away, so hence we have many as we do Cockatoos.
The birds are adorable!
They are sweet.
I was surprised how much there was to do in and around Pt Augusta. Nice shots of the area.
I remember the Port Augusta supermarket, spent quite a bit of time there buying cleaning products. I was cleaning up my dad's flat while he was in hospital, absolutely everything was coated in brown muck from his chain smoking. When I finally washed his walls, I discovered they were a lovely pale lemon yellow shade. I love the galahs, I've always loved them.
