Artist's Description

Please view large…The Cockatoo – Rose breasted or Galah is one of the most widespread of Australia’s parrots, being found in all states. It is only absent from the most arid country and from the tip of Cape York. It prefers open grasslands and woodland, is a common species in the cities and towns, and has adapted well to farmed land. The species is gregarious, often forming flocks of several hundreds, although when foraging for food these large flocks will often split into small groups, coming together again at the evening roost site. Feeding is often done on the ground and their food in the wild is dominantly seed, nuts and fruit, and they can cause major damage to cultivated grain crops. For this reason the bird is regarded as a pest species in many parts of its range, and licensed culling is permitted in certain states. The Galah can make an excellent pet, with even wild caught young birds capable of becoming affectionate and friendly birds. They will however often become a little unpredictable when mature, and should never be allowed to spend time on a shoulder. They are extremely playful and intelligent birds, which, like most cockatoos, need constant stimulation with toys to play with, and objects to chew, to keep them from getting bored.
I Just Love Spring – Galah


Dela our pet Galah now almost 8 years old, hand raised in NZ and a delightful pet. He can be a little unpredictable at times, but in general he behaves well. His vocabulary is astounding, he has recently begun mixing his sentences up and it always amazes me how many times they make perfect sense.
