Dela…our beautiful Galah loves the coal bucket and wood bunker. He will climb onto the bucket and fling the pieces of coal onto the ground, getting very dirty in the process. The kindling is tossed around the carpet or wooden kitchen floor like a caber. (The caber toss is a traditional Scottish athletic event practised at the Scottish Highland Games involving the tossing of a large wooden pole called a caber.) A funny sight to watch. Dela was hand raised and has been a part of our family for a number of years. His vocabulary gets better with each passing year.

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. 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.
