Mirror Mirror on the wall... Galah - NZ - Southland by 


Galahs are found in all Australian states, and are absent only from the driest areas and the far north of Cape York Peninsula. It is still uncertain whether they are native to Tasmania, though they are locally common today, especially in urban areas. 4. They are common in some metropolitan areas, for example Adelaide, Perth and Melbourne, and common to abundant in open habitats which offer at least some scattered trees for shelter. The changes wrought by European settlement, a disaster for many species, have been highly beneficial for the galah because of the clearing of forests in fertile areas and the provision of stock watering points in arid zones. Flocks of galahs will often congregate and forage on foot for food in open grassy areas. This is Dela, admiring himself in the window, we purchased him as a baby once he had been hand raised. He is now 5 years old and his vocabulary astounds us. I could not imagine a life without our beautiful Dela.

I would like to Dedicate this to all my fellow Bubbler’s who love birds, wild or tame.

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.

    Awesome! When I lived in Sydney, I had a resident flock… about 20+ birds. Love this Andrea :-)

  • Thank you Neil, they are such intelligent birds, and I would be in bird heaven if I had 20+ birds in my backyard like this. I have seen them in the wild in AZ, they are fantastic.
