Galahs are one of Australia’s favourite birds known for their pink and grey coloured feathers and can be seen feeding on seeds on the ground in most parts of Australia. Galahs are noisy, squawking birds often flocking in large groups to feed. Galah’s pair and nest in tree hollows so they also rely on old forests for breeding and to survive.
