The Galah can be easily identified by its rose-pink head, neck and underparts, with paler pink crown, and grey back, wings and undertail. Birds from the west of Australia have comparatively paler plumage. Galahs have a bouncing acrobatic flight, but spend much of the day sheltering from heat in the foliage of trees and shrubs. Huge noisy flocks of birds congregate and roost together at night. The Galah is one of the most abundant and familiar of the Australian parrots, occurring over most of Australia, including some offshore islands (From Birds in Backyards)
I saw a pair of Galahs in a park today while I was walking to the Grocery store. While I was taking photos of them they were joined by a number of Long billed Corellas.
