Galahs were once confined to the open plains that occur beyond the inland slopes of the Great Divide in eastern Australia, north of the Flinders Ranges in South Australia, and north of the Mulga–Eucalypt line in Western Australia. However, following the clearing of subcoastal woodlands for farming, Galahs began to flood in, taking advantage of the new habitat and its abundant supply of food. They even spread to the coasts, where they are now a familiar sight in the cities.

Monkey Mia is a popular tourist destination located about 900 km north of Perth, Western Australia. The reserve is 25 km northeast of the town of Denham in the Shark Bay Marine Park and World Heritage Site.
Captured this little guy while I was in Monkey Mia. It was so special as I was not expecting it to be there.. I was just taking photos at the jetty and saw this!
Thought I’ll share with you a photo closer to home; the wildlife I have right in my backyard! I love where we live!! There are lots of wildlife. I just had to stop, sit and wait ready with my camera;) They sit up in the trees chirping happily away.
