Hello Julian,

As Stephen has suggested bill-stropping and eye-wiping are regular elements of 
Galah behaviour, carried out mainly by males at breeding time. If you are 
interested in Galahs, my website is worth a look and 
Ian Rowley"s book even more so. We studied Galahs in Western Australia for 
nearly seven years back in the 1970's. Those were the good old days, or were 
they? Long term wildlife research is no longer supported by governments of any 

A quick look at Surrey Beatty"s website suggests that the book was still 
available new for $39.60 in 2010 but it is now listed by most other dealers as 
out of print.

It seems to be available still as "new" from for $43.56
