Australian Galah.

The Galah flew above my head as I waited for another bird to show itself. The call of the Galah was my first knowledge it was flying overhead. I took a picture of both Galahs, they always travel in pairs, however, in this shot there is only one. The day is drawing to a close and the Galahs come in for the evening feed next door.
