Galeries of Pink Galahs

Day 20 - Boulia, Channel Country, Western Queensland

All the while I was taking photos of the sunrise, large flocks of galahs were leaving their overnight roosts and circling around ready to head off.
When they are like this, they are not squawky noisy but rather a softer high pitched twilling noisy.

I just came across this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6nsHQ7eTao LOL
Well snapped, what a sight! wonderful, fav.

And we think we have a lot of galahs. Its 430 time to feed the chooks and i can see them all strategicly place in the trees waiting to invade once Kel leaves the vacinity. Love the beautiful pink sunset and Boulia is very different from what i imagined.

That is quite a sight. They blend in nicely with the pinkish clouds at sunset. That is a funny video you posted.
