Day 150 Friday 26th August 2011
I felt rather sorry for this pink & grey galah, there he was, minding his own business eating away when 2 indian myna birds swooped down on to him and his friend. They were trying to pester them in to leaving the area – due to them nesting in the area. This galah ended up flying up in to this tree, to escape the grief it was getting, only to be accompanied by the myna bird who continued to annoy it.
I was fortunate enough to witness all of the above in my lunch break. It saved me from going crazy in the afternoon.
Galah is also a slang term here in Australia that describes someone as being an idiot….”you’re a galah!”
