unusual beach birds

Posted on Updated on

P1130010

While beach walking a saw this pair of Galahs feeding along the edge of the sand dunes, the female has red eyes and the male has brown eyes. Normally favouring large flocks, this pair seem to like their own company as I often see them together feeding on the weeds along the edge of the nature reserve near my house. The Galah is really a small cockatoo, a ground feeding bird around 36 cm they are a common and widespread sight throughout Australia.
