Stopped by the post office again today and both mum and dad galah were in attendance on their gum tree. She flew off when we arrived but papa was working away at the bark of the tree most industriously and you could see a huge area where he had been chipping away at it. Whether it is the bark itself or some insect in there I don't know but he kept right on regardless of vehicles driving past or people walking.
It was funny to watch him as a man walked behind the tree and the galah stretched out one way to see where the fellow was going and then the other way to make sure he continued walking on past the tree.
I whistled to the galah and he turned and gave ma a cheerful look and then continued on with chipping away at the bark.
Whether their young one has hatched or not is hard to tell but at least it was wonderful to see both the adults still very active.
They are both just SOOO beautiful and have adapted so well to suburban living.
