Galah or Rose-breasted Cockatoo

In Australia these beautiful cockatoos are usually referred to as Galahs. Other names for these spunky birds are the Roseate Cockatoo and the Pink and Grey Cockatoo.  Their range is throughout Australia and man's changes to the Australian landscape have actually increased the numbers of these cockatoos and they continue to increase in numbers.

They are persecuted because many farmers consider them to be an agricultural pest.  The word Galah is Aboriginal in origin and has come to mean "fool" and the expression "as crazy as a Galah" is often used in Australia.  Rose-breasted Cockatoos have been hybridised with both Major Mitchell's cockatoos and cockatiels creating some pretty odd looking specimens.
