A very colourful bird which a generation ago was sometimes kept as a caged pet. Some could be taught to say a few words, others would just screech which is their usual call. This one is in the wild.
beautiful image of a galah - pretty sure they're still kept as pets - we had one years ago and she would dance to home among the gum trees and say a few words

That is magnificent Alex. Tragic to think of them caged. Fav

@annied Hi Annie. They quite possibly are, I haven't come across any lately. I believe they can live for quite a long time.

@julianneovie Don't get your fingers too close to the beak or you mightn't think they are cute any more.

@alex_g in captivity they say around 30-40 years though some have been known to live much longer
