The galah (Eolophus roseicapilla), less commonly known as the pink and grey cockatoo or rose-breasted cockatoo, is an Australian species of cockatoo and the only member of the genus Eolophus. The galah is adapted to a wide variety of modified and unmodified habitats and is one of Australia's most abundant and widespread bird species. The species is endemic to mainland Australia. It was introduced to Tasmania, where it is now widespread, in the mid-19th century and much more recently to New Zealand. This specimen was grazing on the lawn of the nature strip in front of our house.

  2. The pink colour is so good. They make good Xmas cheer.

  3. There probably aren't millions of birds with bright pink necks and faces. He/she stands out!
