We have a great variety of birds in our garden and on our five acre property. Some of these birds are resident breeding species, others are regular visitors while some are only occasional visitors.
Galahs are regular visitors, either flying over in flocks ranging from less than a dozen through as large as three or four hundred at a time. Sometimes one of these large flocks will land in the large tree near our driveway; their screeching can be a little noisy at times.
A few days ago the individual shown in the photo above decided to investigate our bird bath. He was very hestitant about the whole affair, and flew off wthout drinking. I’m pleased he decided to stay long enough to get a nice photo.
