Look Who is in love and Blushing :) The Galahs

We went for a walk to our local beach and came across these beautiful creatures and sharing it. The galah (Eolophus roseicapilla), also known as the pink and gray, is one of the most common and widespread cockatoos, and it can be found in open country in almost all parts of mainland Australia.

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.

Galahs form permanent pair bonds, although a bird will take a new partner if the other one dies. The nest is a tree hollow or similar location, lined with leaves. Both sexes incubate the eggs and care for the young.
