Taken with my compact Canon Powershot SX210.
When I walk my dog I usually have the camera in my pocket and sometimes I get some nice shots.
This little galah wasn’t over worried about me and it stayed put while I took quite a few shots.
The Galah can be easily identified by its rose-pink head, neck and underparts, with paler pink crown, and grey back, wings and undertail. Birds from the west of Australia have comparatively paler plumage. Galahs have a bouncing acrobatic flight, but spend much of the day sheltering from heat in the foliage of trees and shrubs. Huge noisy flocks of birds congregate and roost together at night.
