Flaming Galah

Galahs are monogamous birds and mates for life. Males like to make displays for females by strutting towards them, bobbing and waving their heads and raising their crest, making soft calls, and clicking their bill.
A Flaming Galah is Australian slang for someone who is a bit of a doofus, a bit of a fool, a bit of a mentalist but nonetheless is a very loveable creature.
They’re also the wonderful birds that you see here. I see them at least a couple of times each week and they’re usually always in a pair, just like here!
