Galahs galore


These little buggers are known throughout Australia as galahs, and in many parts of Western Australia as 'pink and greys'. Hazel and I call them 'iddies' because they're not real cluey. Here they are waiting for the next bushfire to rip through.

For those who've not visited the smokey shores of the great southern land, the burnt-out stumpy things the iddies are scrounging around are called 'grass trees'. Or if you're a speaker of the indigenous Nyoongar language, 'Balga', or if you're from a remote part of Australia like Tweed Heads, 'black boys'.
