GALAHS, Eolophus roseicapillus,
Galahs are very pretty birds, over the last
16 years, fron just a small handfull of birds on
our farm,they have multiplied to a flock of more
than200. When roosting in trees, they can strip
them of leaves, even large 100 year old
eucalypts, in a few days. Being seed eaters , they
multiply like rabbits where there are fields of grain
and stock water available. Before farming their
numbers were limited in dryland areas by the
lack of availability of water.
Cacatua galerita, in my garden.
Sulphur-crested cockatood have leonine strength in
their beaks. They can crack through finger bones as
easily as they tear apart pinecones to get at the seeds.
