April 24 Galahs (Day 210)

Today is a travel day. We will travel from the remote south-west back to civilization near Hobart (only about 1.5 hours)! We need to start preparations for turning in the camper, repacking for airline travel and our next destination! On the way we stopped at a park and had our first sighting of galahs! Otherwise known as the rose-breasted cockatoo or pink and grey cockatoo, it is originally from mainland Australia, but was introduced to Tasmania in the mid 19th century and more recently to New Zealand.

They didn’t let me get too close! I’m surprised that they aren’t popular in the pet trade.
