Before becoming an Australian immigrant, the only reference I’d heard to a Galah was from Croc Dundee or Alf Stewart from Home & Away. In truth, I had no idea what one was. I assumed it was Australian slang for idiot, not realising it was actually a bird. I know, ignorant. Cut me some slack though, I did live the other side of the world where the closest you get to these guys is a robin red breast. Now, of course, I frequently see them roaming parks in large numbers but I wasn’t to know!
