Pretty in pink, Galahs are small cockatoos. They love playing in the rain, swinging upside-down like acrobats and gymnasts from the most awkward spots.
They are quick to issue warning signals at the slightest hint of danger with their customary loud and screechy sqawks. Though they can boss the much bigger currawongs off the water bowl by the mere spread of their wings.
On one occasion, I have seen a galah give chase to an eagle at a great height and over a long distance - a feat normally reserved for magpies.
