Took a few pics of some galahs today, to be honest they are my least favourite bird but they take a good photo.

 

They had come in to drink at the trough I was working at..

Excellent pictures. I love the outback.

I also love galahs, it is cool watching them all congregate on the ground in packs and eat all the grasses.

Great photos there :D.

 

I took in a tame rescued galah last week. He loves a headscratch, dances, and jumps on me as soon as I enter the aviary. So far we haven't found the owners, but I've got people lined up wanting to adopt him.

:D Maybe... yep we headed out, not the best one imo. May be heading out further east to get dna samples of dogs at some stage. Did you go?

Was doing 'dog stuff' have 1 spot that needs some attention. Have quietened them down most other places now. Weather has been perfect to be out lately.

Unfortunately I was unable to go. With no job at present it is hard to go anywhere mate. I drive a V8 Ute and even though it is on Gas and Petrol it still would have cost a bit to do the trip. I think my little buddy Rousey was in the bull riding. A few of my mates went and had a great time. Maybe next year.

 

You out doing the DNA typing of the wild dog population or dingos? I have sort of been keeping up with the goings on re the wild dog populations in the outback. Bit of a problem to say the least.

Rousey's real name is Ian Miller. His parents live in Gosnells but since he moved out of home he calls Dandaragan home, or where ever he parks his ute and lays his hat. He's no champion bull rider but he's out there giving it a ago and having fun and that's what counts. He is the nicest guy you'll ever meet. I seen pix of some of the utes when they got back!
